Impact Statement Are you or looking for an opportunity to support people in Grande Prairie? Do you empathize with those who are dealing with a long term health concern? Here is an opportunity to use those skills! Alberta Health Services is looking for volunteers to co-facilitate the Better Choices, Better Health® chronic disease self-management program.
Description Better Choices, Better Health® Self-Management program is a 6 week program that meets once a week for 2.5 hours. Each class is led by two trained leaders. The class is attended by those who have a chronic health condition, are supporting someone with a health condition, or want to prevent a chronic health condition. The course is offered at local community sites (Community Centre’s, Senior Centre’s, Churches, etc.) and in Healthcare facilities. It is based on Stanford University’s widely tested Chronic Disease Self-Management program. Participants learn how to be good self-managers by dealing with the physical and emotional challenges of long term health conditions. Practical ways to handle pain, fatigue, and stress; discover better nutrition and exercise choices; set personal goals and step by step action plans are all discussed.
