The Physician resource guide to patient self-management support developed by the American Medical Association (AMA) introduces patient self-management support concepts and presents selected resources and practice implementation tools. The resource guide builds on existing information in the field of patient self-management. It is organized to direct physicians to resources that will help them implement cost-effective techniques at various levels of the health care system in order to help patients achieve better health outcomes and increase their quality of life.
