Design for Self-Care
Self-care is a process with which all people will engage at some point in their lives, whether healthy, healing from an acute health situation, or living with chronic illness. As such, there are different types of self-care with unique components and challenges. Each challenge presents an opportunity to design interventions to improve the process and outcomes of self-care. This chapter describes the key actors, challenges, and solutions presented in human factors literature addressing self-care.
