Chronic Disease Self Management Programme
The CDSMP is an EPP Cymru course to help people who live with a long term health condition to maintain and improve their quality of life through self-management.
What does the course involve?
Six weekly sessions, each lasting two and a half hours (including breaks and refreshments). They are very varied. There are brief talks, discussions and freethinking sessions.
The course is about learning important general skills, not specific to any one condition, including:
- managing your symptoms
- dealing with stress
- depression and low self-image
- managing pain
- developing coping skills
- learning ways to relax and eating healthily
- working more closely with those caring for you
- planning for the future.
