A workshop on managing chronic conditions developed by the Patient Education Research Center at the Stanford University School of Medicine is now available free of charge online.
Better Choices, Better Health offers the same benefits as the in-person workshops, but with the convenience of reaching out to more patients via the Internet.
As with the in-person groups, Better Choices, Better Health participants with conditions such as diabetes and arthritis are led by trained facilitators on topics about managing pain and fatigue and improving their quality of life.
Several of the facilitators who also suffer from similar chronic conditions also help participants learn about different treatment options, find suitable ways to exercise and eat healthy, and have better communication with family members and physicians.
