Summary "This book explores how self-management has become valued within the NHS and local communities, and also airs the arguments about the importance of lay leadership. It is the first book to bring together those who have been instrumental in developing these courses, and to assess the value they hold for the different groups directly involved in them (participants, course trainers, staff), and those they will affect indirectly (GPs, nurses, policy makers, commissioners). In this book, personal experiences and accounts of the excitement in designing new work are set alongside reflections on what happens to people attending these courses, and deliberation of radical questions about the need for resilient communities. Research reports are examined, raising considerations for policy makers and local agencies, both voluntary and statutory. Finally, questions about the future direction and links to local communities are explored."--Jacket
