Live Well, the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP), developed by Stanford University’s Patient Education Research Center, is a 6-week workshop that takes place once a week for 2.5 hours. It is facilitated by two trained peer leaders. The workshop teaches the skills needed in the day-to-day management of chronic health conditions (diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, depression, heart disease, etc.) and gives participants the motivation and confidence that is required to address health challenges. Researchers have found that participants have fewer hospitalizations and emergency room visits, and feel empowered to manage their chronic conditions.
Volunteers facilitate the workshop at local senior centers, 55+ communities, health care organizations, and places of worship. Schedules vary, however, workshops are typically held weekdays at 10 am or 5 pm. Requests are made for weekend workshops and volunteers are now needed to facilitate these sessions.
