Chronic disease self-management is a growing field yet few systematic measures of its impact exist. The Health Education Impact Questionnaire (heiQ)-rigorously developed in partnership with key stakeholders-is a panel of eight highly relevant questionnaires that has been tested and applied in many settings. Wide uptake across diseases has occurred because it resonates with patient concerns, helps researchers and practitioners develop quality services, and assists policy-makers to appreciate the value of self-management support interventions. The heiQ continues to be adapted for new uses and applications creating a web of knowledge of the value and impact of health education programs.
