dc.description.abstractSupporting self management is seen as an important health service strategy in dealing with the large and increasing health burden of chronic conditions. Several types of self-management programs are available. Evidence to date suggests that disease-specific and lay-led self management programs provide only part of the support needed for improved outcomes. The Flinders Program is promising as a generic self management intervention, which can be combined with targeted disease-specific and lay-led interventions, but it has yet to be evaluated for a range of chronic conditions using a rigorous controlled trial design. This paper gives the rationale for a randomised controlled trial and process evaluation of the Flinders Program of chronic condition self-management in community practice, and details and justifies the design of such a study.en
