Abstract: Chronic diseases, including diabetes, represent the most prevalent problem in healthcare today. They are the most common cause of disability and consume the largest part of health expenditures internationally. Most diabetes care is provided by people with diabetes and their family or supporters. Therefore, understanding how to enhance diabetes self-management is of primary importance in addressing this growing burden. The effective self-management of type 2 diabetes is closely linked to environmental factors and a person’s lifestyle. In this article, the authors describe the Flinders Chronic Condition Self-Management Program, which highlights the person’s perspective, and an example of its practical application in an Aboriginal population in South Australia is provided.
