Shifting the paradigm of care from traditional roles of clinicians directing patients to a model of collaboration in care has gained currency as a strategy for improving both health care quality and outcomes. This chapter describes self-management and collaborative care programs, which are well developed for certain chronic conditions (such as arthritis and diabetes). It then discusses various considerations in moving toward a self-management and collaborative care approach for persons with disabilities. The core to any such effort is for clinicians to listen to and learn from their patients with disabilities, who are often the experts about their health and needs. The chapter looks at accessibility of self-management and resources and technologies to aid self-management.
