Living Well with Chronic Conditions

Living Well with Chronic Conditions (the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program, or CDSMP) is a six-week workshop that provides tools for living a healthy life with chronic health conditions, including diabetes, arthritis, asthma and heart disease.

Through weekly sessions, the workshop provides support for continuing normal daily activities and dealing with the emotions that chronic conditions may bring about.

Chronic Disease Self-Management programs supported by the Oregon Health Authority and the Oregon Department of Human Services include Tomando Control de su Salud, a Spanish-language, culturally appropriate version, and the Positive Self-Management Program (PSMP), a workshop for people with HIV/AIDS.

Living Well workshops are now available in many counties in Oregon.
