The Empower Programme is The Chronic Disease Self-Management Programme and has been in the UK for 20 years.
The Empower Programme was developed from research at Stanford University and the content of the course is based from people with long-term health conditions.
The programme provides you with a range of self-management techniques, to help you take control of your condition, increase your confidence and improve your quality of life.
