This research aims to provide a scientific vision about the design of self-management interventions for chronic diseases, considering that self-management is the most effective method for managing an individual's health condition by improving the quality of life, organizing internal processes concerned with behavior modification, and increasing patient self-efficacy. Chronic diseases are considered one of the challenges facing health systems because they lead to health and social complications and risks and negatively affect the quality of life, in addition to the high financial costs borne by health care systems due to these diseases.

That is why it has become necessary to adopt effective strategies that enable the chronically ill to control his disease and improve his quality of life by changing his behavior, and this can only be with what is known as self-management, which refers to the patient's ability to deal with all the consequences of chronic disease.
