What is Self teach: Definition and 14 Discussions

Self-care is the individual practise of health management without the aid of a medical professional. In health care, self-care is any human regulatory function which is under individual control, deliberate and self-initiated, for the purpose of the maintenance of health and wellbeing. It can additionally be described as the "practice of activities that an individual initiates and performs on their own behalf in maintaining life, health, and well-being.” Self-care and health care providers can be considered to be opposing ends on a health-related continuum and possess a complex relationship. For example, there is an expectation for nurses to act as supporters and facilitators to improve a patient’s health in an ongoing manner, long after a medical event. In modern medicine, preventive medicine aligns most closely with self-care. A lack of adherence to medical advice or the onset of a mental disorder make the practise of self-care difficult. Self-care is seen as a partial solution to the global rise in health care costs that are placed on governments.
Self-care is considered to be a primary form of care for patients with self-managed chronic illness. Self-management education complements traditional patient education in primary care to increase the quality of life for patients with chronic conditions. Self-care is considered to be a continuous learning process.
