Chronic Disease Self-Management brings people who have similar concerns and problems. Participants are armed with tools to better manage the challenges that dealing with a chronic condition presents. Topics covered include pain and fatigue management, effective communication, goal setting, physical activity, healthy eating, stress management. Participants learn that they have a "tool box" for managing their challenges; they just have to remember to utilize the tool box.
Topics include making healthy food choices, medication usage, making informed treatment decisions, dealing with depression, positive thinking and making an action plan.
