Self care fact sheets

The Self Care Forum Fact Sheets for common ailments aim to help clinicians and patients discuss issues around self care within the practice consultation and especially how to handle the symptoms in the future. They provide patients with information around:

  • useful facts
  • what patients can expect to happen (the natural history)
  • what people can do to help themselves – now and in the future
  • when to seek medical help (the ‘red flags’)
  • where to find out more.
