As more and more people worldwide live with long term conditions it is increasingly recognised that people need to be empowered to take responsibility for their health and to be actively involved in self-care. TheInternational Journal of Nursing Studieswill dedicate a special issue of the journal to self-care in long term conditions and related themes, guest edited by Professors Barbara Riegel and Tiny Jaarsma.
Our special issue will help to disseminate new research in the self-care field to inform the work of nurses and other health professionals. We invite submissions that report research using all research designs. We welcome reviews and studies that have the potential to change nursing care practice or policy, irrespective of methods. We particularly encourage submission of reports of rigorous and generalizable randomised controlled trials and systematic review of trials that advance the evidence base for promoting self-care in long term conditions.
