Primary health care (PHC) strategies have heightened health care providers' awareness of the need to understand their communities and provided knowledge on how to mobilize communities for health. Orem, a nurse theorist, has developed a similar philosophical position on mobilizing individuals for self-care, which complements PHC theory at the community level. This article links the philosophies and strategies of PHC with self-are and proposes a delivery model of case management, drawing on examples from the HIV/AIDS pandemic and the aging population to illustrate the type of coordinating activities required of case managers in the 21st century.
