My Toolbox March and May 2014 sessions: MUHC Chronic Disease Self-management Program

Now is time to register for the March and May sessions of the highly successful ‘My Toolbox’, the MUHC chronic disease self-management program begins on March 17th and May 12th, 2014. My Toolbox is a series of workshops designed to help people learn the skills they need to live well with chronic health conditions including asthma, arthritis, chronic pain, diabetes, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, cancer, etc. The workshops emphasize strategies to help people cope with everyday life situations and learn practical skills such as: how to manage symptoms, work and communicate effectively with the health care team, reduce pain and fatigue, manage negative emotions such as fear, anxiety, frustration and depression, and how to get started with exercise and healthy eating. More than 1800 people have registered for the evidence-based 6 week program since its inception at the MUHC in 2007.

Workshops are held free of charge, in English and French at various times: morning, afternoon and evening. This session we will be offering workshops in the downtown area, Westmount and Pointe-Claire. Registration is now open to anyone living with a chronic health condition.
