About the Self-Management Education Working Group:
The Self Management Education Working Group is unified under the first of four recommended public health interventions outlined in the National Public Health Agenda for Osteoarthritis which describes self management education as, "a process to help adults with a chronic condition learn how to manage their condition, prevent its short-and long-term health consequences, and achieve the best possible quality of life" as well as, "a valuable public health intervention and a useful adjunct to care delivered in a clinical setting."
