Self-Management VOICED: outcomes that matter

Reviewing the evidence

A systematic review of existing empirical research.


A review of current literature and government documents  was carried out to identify which self-management outcomes are important to the each stakeholder group: patient, family, healthcare professionals and commissioners. The purpose of the literature was to answer the three aims and to identify the gap in existing evidence.


1) Identify which outcomes of self-management are of importance from patients, family, health professionals and commissioner perspectives

2) Identify which outcomes of self-management are commonly targeted within self-management interventions and policy guidance.

3) Identify areas of similarity and disparity in self-management outcomes considered important across conditions and stakeholder groups.
