      The article discusses the potential of adopting a comprehensive model for self-management support (SMS) in pediatric care to improve health outcomes and lessen use, costs and caregiver burden. Topics cited include evidence for SMS from adult populations, providing SMSs in pediatric settings and enhancing the capacity of practices to provide SMSs. Tables showing self-management skills and activities, SMSs for families and references for select disease-specific pediatric SM programs are given.
