Living Well SE OntarioSelf-Management Program of Southeastern Ontario

Regional Program

The Self-Management Program of Southeastern Ontario is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to coordinate, promote and facilitate self-management workshops across Southeastern Ontario.

The Self-Management Program of Southeastern Ontario coordinates self-management workshops, providing the opportunity for individuals, caregivers and health care providers to learn about self-management and support for people living with (or at-risk of developing) chronic conditions.

Three main priorities:

  1. Coordinate self-management workshops for residents of Southeastern Ontario living with or at-risk of developing a chronic condition, their family members, and their caregivers.
  2. Coordinate Choices and Changes workshop for health care providers.
  3. Train workshop facilitators in order to increase access to workshops throughout the region.

‚ÄčOur program goal is to provide individuals with the knowledge, skills and confidence to self-manage their chronic conditions and to provide health care professionals with the tools and techniques to offer better self-management support.

The anticipated impact is that individuals will have a stronger ability to self-manage their chronic conditions and live healthier lives, thereby improving health outcomes and reducing long-term health care costs.

This centralized coordination helps promote access to self-management supports, programs and resources throughout the community.

The Self-Management Program of Southeastern Ontario is housed at the Kingston Community Health Centres and holds a regional license to facilitate the Stanford Self-Management Programs. Partnering agencies have signed on under our license in order to host the 6-week Living Well workshops. This program is successful because of the commitment of staff and volunteers at partner organizations who recognize the importance of offering self-management support to their patients and taking the initiative to engage clients by running workshops at their organization.
