Abstract

Recognition of the growing threat of chronic disease should prompt changes in healthcare delivery to promote and support better patient engagement and self-management. Optimal care for chronic disease should include activities to support patients in self-management, including goal-setting and counseling patients to adopt healthy behaviors and to integrate skills at managing their disease on a day-to-day basis. However, without patient engagement, we cannot expect the intended benefits. There is growing literature on how patient engagement and self-management impact the experience and improve outcomes. Interventions should aim at supporting behavior change, such as self-management, sharing principles of health coaching with iterative interactions between patients and healthcare professionals (case manager) with the goals of motivating, engaging, and supporting the patients to better manage their disease and adopt healthy behaviors.

This chapter includes a review of the problem of adherence in chronic respiratory diseases, strategies to improve adherence, and the importance and need to promote and support better patient engagement, e.g., behavior change and self-management.
