Self-Management Programs
Persons with chronic health conditions and family members can participate in self-management programs offered in communities throughout BC at no cost. These are evidence-based programs that provide information, teach practical skills and give people the confidence to manage their health condition(s). A summary of self-management program activity in British Columbia for 2016 can be downloaded here. You can view a video of Dr. Aaron Leppin of the Mayo Clinic discussing "well care" and the importance of self-management programs.
 
Self-Management Support
Self-management support consists of techniques and strategies that can be used by health professionals in clinical practice to encourage healthy behaviours.
