Currently education and ongoing care of individuals with chronic conditions most commonly occur in the primary care settings where physicians have limited time to spend with those individuals. Increasingly, individuals with a chronic condition are taking more responsibility for their own self care. There are very few evidence based models of patient education self management support in the community, therefore, individuals are seeking out web based technology for this support. While there are some positive aspects associated with internet based approaches to education for chronic disease self management, there are definite limitations. With only one generic internet based Chronic Disease Self Management Program do the benefits seem to outweigh the limitations. (Imprint: Nova)
