Leaders facilitate FREE group workshops once a week, for 2.5 hours, over six weeks. Participants receive:
- LiveWell with Chronic Conditions receive a FREE Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions textbook
- LiveWell with Chronic Pain receive a FREE Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain and a Moving Easy program CD.
Participants in both workshops have noticed increased well-being and self-confidence in chronic condition self-management.
The practical and interactive workshops contain information on problem-solving and action plans, exercise, cognitive symptom management, nutrition, fatigue and symptom management, use of medications, dealing with difficult emotions, and communication and more. The focus is on building skills to self-manage while living an active and fulfilling life.
These two LiveWell self-management programs are licensed for use of the Saskatchewan Health Authority - Regina Area by Stanford University.
