Minding your Long-term Health Condition during Coronavirus
The national HSE Self-management Support Co-ordinator team have developed a number of resources to support adults in the self-management of their long-term health conditions
The ‘Minding your long-term health condition during Coronavirus (COVID-19)’ leaflet originally developed in April 2020 has been updated and was launched yesterday. This leaflet provides practical and clear information to support people to manage their long-term health condition and to stay well. Each key message is supported by a helpful tip and people are signposted to supports, reputable websites or healthcare practitioners for further information. It also includes the new Dept. of Health recommendation on Vitamin D supplementation for those aged 65+. To view the leaflet go to https://www.hse.ie/eng/health/hl/selfmanagement/living-well-programme/minding-your-long-term-health-condition-during-coronavirus-covid-19-.pdf
In addition, ‘Tips for Self-Managing your Health when living with a long-term health condition’ is another useful resource. It is designed to highlight 10 practical steps that people can take to live well with their long-term health condition. This leaflet could also be uploaded or signposted as a resource to support those with Long-term health conditions to self-manage.
These leaflets, along with other resources, videos and information about the HSE Living Well programme can be found at www.hse.ie/selfmanagementsupport
I note that you have already uploaded the ‘Minding your long-term health condition during Coronavirus (COVID-19)’ leaflet to the AOTI website. I would be grateful if you could also upload the ‘Tips for Self-Managing your Health when living with a long-term health’ leaflet, and share both leaflets and the webpage url with your members so that they, in turn, can share them with service users who play a key role in the management of their long-term health condition.
