Abstract

There is a pressing need for practical interventions to support self-management of chronic illness that can be integrated with primary care, and thattake into account the patient's social environment. This pilot study was conducted with low-income clients of a community health center and focused on enhancing use of social-environmental resources supportive of self-management. Twenty-eight patients having at least one chronic illness, randomizedto immediate versus delayed treatment conditions, met once with a health educator to develop a self-management plan, and received one follow-up phonecall and two newsletters. Significant improvements in use of community resources, minutes of physical activity, and medication adherence were obtained compared to control. Integrating brief selfmanagement counseling with social environmental support appeared effective, although much more can be done to better link counseling to primary care practice.
