Overview

With a rising ageing population, management of chronic diseases will take on increasing importance in Singapore. Current evidence point to self-management as one of the most effective strategies in chronic disease management. Self-management involves getting the client to take active responsibility for their own health and well-being. With extensive experience, research and publications, Professor Tanya Packer is one of the leading experts in this field.

This 2-day workshop aims to equip you with the knowledge and skills of designing self-management programme for use with your client population. Professor Tanya Packer will go through the existing protocols and identify the key ingredients in successful self-management programmes. You will also be exposed to useful outcome measures that can be used for programme evaluation.
