What is the Best Chronic Disease Self-Management Program?

The Chronic Disease Self-Management Program Developed by: Stanford University or the Advanced Chronic Disease Self-Management program ACDSMP Developed by: Healzen Inc.

The process of the Stanford University program was based on the experience of the investigators and others with self-efficacy, the confidence one has that he or she can master a new skill or affect one’s own health. Each participant in the workshop receives a copy of the companion book, Living a Healthy Life With Chronic Conditions, 4th Edition, and an audio relaxation CD, Relaxation for Mind and Body.

Healzen, Inc. reports that the ACDSMP program employs lifestyle modifications and self-help techniques to help adults experiencing chronic health conditions such as obesity, hypertension, arthritis, heart disease, stroke, lung disease, and diabetes. Thanks to the building-blocks of the program, it will become second-nature to enjoy healthy eating, walking, improved breathing, all while staying motivated to sustain their new wellbeing.

During a recent interview, Healzen spokesperson said this: “The adequate management of chronic diseases requires behavioral modifications to break long standing lifestyle patterns that can sustain an individual’s decline in health. The prescriptive nature of traditional interventions for management of chronic diseases fails to support sustainable behavioral change. Scientists at Healzen Inc., has been working on a solution for more effective chronic disease management. With our expertise in this industry, Healzen has been able to deliver a solution that will change the way people Manage their chronic diseases in the future.”
