Introduction: The emphasis on self-management of long-term conditions, including respiratory conditions, is growing. Patients with respiratory conditions often have to adhere to medical treatments to prevent ill health and promote good health. They have to deal with psychological and social needs and maintain effective communication with health ;are practitioners. The role of a self-management intervention is not known in the management of patients with bronchiectasis thus this thesis includes a series of studies investigating self-management in bronchiectasis. The programme of research follows the Medical Research Council framework for the design of complex interventions to improve health from the preclinical phase to phase II (Campbell, Fitzpatrick et al 2000).
