Healthy Living with Ongoing Health Conditions , also named the Chronic Disease Self- Management Program (CDSMP), was developed for people with ongoing health conditions - those who want to restore the feeling that they are living “with” a condition rather than letting “it” control them. Participants and their caregiver/support person learn practical skills for managing their chronic health problems such as tools to communicate effectively with family, friends, and health professionals, problem solving and relaxation techniques which result in improved health status and proper utilization of the health care system.
