Next Wednesday 18th November will take place the Final Conference of the European project EFFICHRONIC
The time has come to know the profitability and the beneficial effects for society of the implementation of the “Chronic Disease Self-Management Program” (CDSMP). This training program developed during the project is aimed at vulnerable people suffering from one or more chronic diseases and their caregivers. The key element of this training program is to provide participants with strategies that allow them to self-manage their own health and illness, in order to be able to adapt the illness to their lives, to face it and to adapt it to their individual and socio-cultural environment, thus eventually improving their quality of life and their level of health.
All this and much more will see the light on November 18th, in the final conference of the European project Effichronic. In this conference, all the partners of the project will participate to present the detailed information about the methodology used and the results obtained having implemented the CDSMP in the five European regions involved (Asturias, Rotterdam, Genoa, London and Montpellier).
In the morning session, experts in recruitment strategies, statistical analysis and public health policies will provide information on studies of great interest carried out during the project.
In the afternoon session, Kate Lorig, CDSMP’s lead program representative, will discuss the new challenges posed by the new COVID-19 pandemic and Jim Phillips, co-director of the European Centre for the Empowerment of Patients and Communities (CEMPAC), will discuss the critical role of the health system in self-management strategies.
Registration is available here.
The conference will be held virtually and registration is free. There will be simultaneous translation until 11:00 am.
