Improving Health: My Way is a chronic disease self-management program designed by Stanford University and offered around the world.
Here are two videos from Australia and the United States that show the benefit of this program for participants and leaders.
Improving Health: My Way is a provincially sponsored, free program designed to help people positively manage the daily challenges of living with a chronic condition. Workshops are co-led by trained Leaders who themselves have a chronic condition or have cared for someone living with a chronic condition. Workshops consist of six sessions that are offered for 2.5 hours once a week, over a six week period. A support person of your choice (friend or family) may accompany you to the training sessions. Workshops are offered throughout the province, in each of the four regional health authorities.
