Chronic Disease Intervention

The Chronic Disease Intervention Program is a tool used to teach individuals how to self-manage chronic disease and increase knowledge about these chronic conditions.  Self-management relates to the tasks that an individual must undertake to live well with one or more chronic conditions. The self-management program is designed to give participants skills to coordinate all the things needed to manage their health and not to conflict with existing treatment.
