Empowering those with chronic conditions through education and community
What is in the Network?
Chronic Disease Self-Management
Stanford's Chronic Disease Self-Management Program, also known as "Better Choices, Better Health," is a six-week program that runs for 2 ½ hours each week in community settings, senior centers, and physicians offices. People with different chronic health problems attend the program together. Workshops are facilitated by two trained leaders, one or both of whom are non-health professionals (referred to as lay leaders) with chronic diseases themselves.
Chronic Pain Self-Management
The Chronic Pain Self-Management Program was developed for people who have a diagnosis of chronic pain. Pain is described as being chronic or long term when it lasts for longer than 3 to 6 months, or beyond normal healing time. It is conducted over six weeks in 2 1/2 hour sessions held once a week and facilitated by 2 trained Leaders.
Walk With Ease
Walk With Ease is designed for people with arthritis—young and old, male and female, fit and not-so-fit. It is also suitable for people without arthritis who would like to begin a regular walking program to gain the benefits of regular aerobic exercise. If you can be on your feet for 10 minutes without increased pain, you can probably participate successfully, and the program can be modified to meet your needs
