What: FREE six-week self-management program designed to introduce skills needed for day-to-day management of chronic conditions. This course is specifically designed to help individuals develop the tools necessary for living a healthy life while managing the symptoms associated with chronic conditions.

Who: Anyone with a chronic illness or anyone who is taking care of someone with a chronic illness.

Why: If you or someone you love has a chronic illness, chances are you are aware that many symptoms can last for years. As there is often no cure, teaching people to manage the symptoms of an illness is key to helping them live fuller, happier lives.

Nearly 100 million Americans suffer from chronic conditions, such as asthma, arthritis, heart disease, high blood pressure, headaches, depression, and kidney disease. While some illnesses may not be disabling, others can cause significant limitations and affect a person’s ability to perform daily activities.

The workshop was developed by Stanford University and has been proven to provide skills necessary to help people better manage their chronic illness. Learn more about the Stanford University program.

Three Different Workshops to Choose From

  1. Living Well with Chronic Conditions - This is the workshop we have been teaching for several years. It is appropriate for people with any chronic illness or family and friends who help to support these patients.
  2. Tomando Control de Su Salud - This workshop is the same as the English version of Living Well with Chronic Conditions except that it is taught 100 percent in Spanish and is appropriate for the Hispanic culture. It is appropriate for people with any chronic illness or family and friends who help to support these patients.
  3. Living Well with Diabetes - This workshop is specifically for people with diabetes or pre-diabetes. More disease specific information will be shared at this workshop, although it follows the same format and same general information as the other workshops. It is appropriate for people who have been diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes or family and friends who help to support these patients.

  • Liver Care ECHO

    Wednesday, May 11, 2016, 7:30 - 9am

    Project ECHO-Liver Care utilizes web-based video conferencing to promote the sharing of knowledge in a partnership that facilitates the delivery of care to patients in their local surroundings and keeps providers up to date on new developments in treatment and research. It has been demonstrated in recent medical publications that patients with complex conditions can be successfully cared for in this method and are more likely to keep scheduled appointments and adhere to challenging medical regimens. The community providers are organized into learning networks that meet on a bi-weekly basis to present patient cases and learn from didactic education sessions. With over 40 percent of our liver failure and post-transplant recipients living more than 150 miles from the  University of Utah Hospital, we are creating a high quality, cost effective method to provide continuing pre- and post-transplant care for these patients in their local communities. Providers are awarded one and a half hours of Category 1 CME credits for their participation in each ECHO Liver Care Clinic.
