The Empower Programme is The Chronic Disease Self-Management Programme and has been in the UK for 20 years and you can now join in virtually via Microsoft Teams.
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.
Empower is suitable for anyone with a long-term health condition or a carer for someone with
a chronic condition. Empower is not aimed at one specific health condition but a range of conditions such as Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, COPD, IBS, diabetes. The course is for anyone living in the Hull area with a Hull GP aged 18+.
Their next online course commences on Tuesday 7th September 6pm-8.30pm.
Week 1 is a pre-course week, so you can get support accessing the course online, you can also meet the tutors and ask any questions about the course.
