Self Management Tools
A great way for patients to improve their health can be achieved through
actively participating in healthy behavior change. The
Ultra Brief Personal Action Plan outlines an effective step-by-step structure designed to help each patient
reach the goals they set for themselves. The link includes a printable
document that the physician and patient can use to develop a plan to be
worked on and assessed during the next office visit.
Another helpful tool to help simplify an Action Plan is to write it out with the
Ladder Action Plan. Working through this process can allow the patient to target one simple
task while building confidence towards meeting it. The Ladder Action Plan
can improve the focus of the patient while also increasing the success
rate of meeting their goal.
Lake Huron Medical Center PHO developed a
Brochure to help encourage the concept of Self-Management through a Patient Centered
Medical Home team approach. This particular brochure has a focus on Diabetes,
but is still an effective tool for all chronic diseases.
Becoming a healthy family can happen by adopting a few simple steps into
your everyday lifestyle. Often, an unhealthy diet and lack of activity
can lead to childhood obesity. However, there is no reason to feel discouraged.
Not only can children overcome Childhood Obesity, it can also be prevented.
The following three documents outline actionable steps that the family
can follow and work with a Pediatrician on to learn how to live a healthy
life. Visiting the Pediatric office, developing a plan, and dedicating
the family to adopting an active and healthy lifestyle can help children
grow out of or even prevent Childhood Obesity.
