Self-management support training modules
This section includes a range of training modules designed for continuing professional development.
On this page:
These training modules have been developed to be used in primary care practices for primary care staff.
The modules are designed to be facilitated by whoever leads continuing professional development in your practice, eg, nurse leader or someone from your primary health organisation.
The modules could be used in other contexts as well, such as secondary care or by non-governmental organisations.
Each module has a training plan for the facilitator and a handout for all participants who attend the training session. Each participant needs a copy of the handout.
Each session takes about one hour.
Each session follows a similar format – finding out what people already know, building on that knowledge and, at the end, an evaluation and reflection activity about the session.
The examples in the training modules have been developed from our observations in primary care settings or from situations that have been described to us.
We have provided the handouts in both pdf and Word format. The Word format allows you to make changes to the examples, scenarios and case studies to better fit your practice setting and patients. If you do make changes to the examples, scenarios please send us your examples to help us when we write more modules.
You can find a certificate of completion here. If the participants would find it useful to receive a certificate, you can modify the attached certificate which is made available as a PowerPoint document.
