9 Importance of Activation
If people don’t understand their role, they aren‘t going to take action, they aren’t going to look for or take in new information If people don’t feel confident, they are less likely to be pro-active This appears to be true regardless of condition © ICSI 2013

10 Value of Activation Research consistently finds that those who are more activated are: Engaged in more preventive behaviors Engaged in more healthy behaviors Engaged in more disease specific self-management behaviors Engaged in more health information seeking behaviors © ICSI 2013

11 Value of Knowing Activation Level
To know who needs more support To target the types of support and information patients and consumers need To evaluate efforts to increase activation To evaluate the quality of care To build the evidence base © ICSI 2013
