dc.description.abstractAlthough English government policy has encouraged the implementation of self-management programmes in services for people with long-term conditions, the evidence for their efficacy has been limited. People with long-term neurological conditions use community-based health services including community nursing, and have particular needs in regards to self-management. This article provides an overview of the evidence for the effectiveness of self-management interventions for people with long-term neurological conditions, in particular those with stroke, Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis. The current need for better interventions is highlighted, particularly the importance of providing condition-specific information and deliverance of interventions in a group setting to improve self-management outcomes. In response to weaknesses of previous self-management interventions for this population, an innovative Hertfordshire Neurological Service self-management programme is discussed, and the implications for future research are described.en
