Stanford – Self- Management Programme

Stanford are highly participatory, providing mutual support.

The course is run over six weeks and can be held at the clinic, community centre, churches and marae.

The session are suitable for anyone with an ongoing health condition, or risk of health issues including prediabetes, high blood pressure and obesity. It is designed for people with different ongoing health problems (diabetes, arthritis, asthma, depression and much more) to attend together and your family or carers are welcome to join you. They will learn lots too!

Workshops are facilitated by two trained leaders, one or both of whom are peer leaders (non-health professionals) with long-term health conditions themselves. This means they really know what it is like to live with the day to day challenges some health conditions bring.

Subjects covered in these workshops include:

  • ways to deal with problems such as frustration, fatigue, pain and isolation
  • safe exercise for maintaining and improving strength, flexibility, and endurance
  • appropriate use of medications
  • communicating effectively with family, friends, and health professionals
  • nutrition
  • shared decision making, and
  • how to evaluate new treatments for yourself.
