WHICH SELF- MANAGEMENT INTERVENTIONS WORK BEST FOR WHICH CONDITION?

WELCOME TO THE SELF-MANAGEMENT BLOG

This blog is powered by COMPAR-EU, an EU-funded project that identifies, compares, and ranks the most effective and cost-effective self-management interventions (SMIs) for adults in Europe living with type 2 diabetes, obesity, COPD, and heart failure. The project will provide support for policymakers, guideline developers and professionals to make informed decisions on the adoption of the most suitable self-management interventions through an IT platform, featuring decision-making tools adapted to the needs of a wide range of end users (including researchers, patients, and industry).

With our Self-Management Blog, we inform you about developments in research, policy, and practice. Self-experience reports, interviews, guest articles, and more are published monthly. Beyond that, the COMPAR-EU team recommends monthly interesting scientific articles for reading.
