SMS Toolkit

Health Navigator and Health Literacy NZ have produced a website providing healthcare professionals information and resources about self-management support (SMS).

Funded by the Ministry of Health, the website  is packed with SMS information, services, tools and resources for a New Zealand context. It supports healthcare workers to better engage patients in their own health decisions and long-term condition self-management.

A range of core topics are covered to support SMS implementation, training and skill development, including sections and training modules for care planning, health literacy, goal setting, positive behaviour change, social support and group visits.
