Health management course

Angus residents living with long term health conditions are invited to take part in a free online course to help them adjust to living well with long term conditions.

NHS Tayside is the only Scottish health authority to commission places on the Online Self-Management Programme, an internet accessed self-management course for over 18s who are living with any long term condition.

The free course consists of six two-hour sessions, with users logging on at times that suit them over a six-week period. The course can be accessed anywhere there is internet access with a user name and secure email address provided at registration. Only basic computer skills are required.

It is based on the Chronic Disease Self-Management Programme developed at Stanford University, California and aims to give participants the tools, techniques and confidence to better manage their condition on a daily basis.
