Adapated for use in the UK, this tool is designed to enable primary care teams to assess how well they are supporting people with long term conditions to self-manage and to identify actions they can take to further support this.
This survey was developed by the Advancing Diabetes Self Management (ADSM) Program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Diabetes Initiative. It is designed to help primary care settings focus on actions that can be taken to support self management by patients with diabetes and/ or other long term conditions, specifically it is designed to:
- Function as a self-assessment, feedback and quality improvement tool
- Characterize optimal performance of providers and systems as well as gaps in resources, services and supports
- Promote discussion among patient care team members that can help build consensus for change and plans for improvement
- Give teams a way to measure progress over time.
