Self-management in neurological disorders: Systematic review of the literature and potential interventions in multiple sclerosis care

Alex D. Rae-Grant, MD, et al.

There is increasing recognition that effective healthcare represents a partnership between patients and their providers. It is important that patients are active and informed participants in their own care process, particularly with respect to chronic illness. This article provides a systematic summary of current evidence supporting the effectiveness of self-management strategies in both multiple sclerosis and neurological illness more generally. Overall, evidence supporting self-management is still emerging but is promising. We discuss self-management strategies and targets and provide suggestions about improving the rigor of future scientific studies.
