Abstract

A patient who is self-managing a chronic condition is actively involved in the prevention, understanding and regulation of his symptoms by means of his behavior and choices. We present the most acknowledged self-management theories and strategies, with an accent on those that can be relevant for supporting ICT solutions for Healthcare. Finally we review five projects about sensing technologies, mobile devices and ambient information displays for self-care and behavior change.
