BACKGROUND: There is a lack of explicit research evidence on community nurses' support for self-care with patients with long-term conditions.
AIM: To examine the nature and extent of support for patient self-care documented in district and family health nursing casenotes.
METHOD: Qualitative case-study and audit methods were used to review 47 casenotes from three Scottish sites on six long-term conditions.
RESULTS: Considerable variation in written evidence of support for self-care was evident within and across sites, and across the different long-term conditions.
DISCUSSION: Questions about support for self-care and related anticipatory care are highlighted when the rhetoric of current policy and the reality of current service provision meet.
CONCLUSION: There is scope for more systematic consideration of support for self-care within community nursing casenotes.
