In Mississauga Halton Region we envision individuals with chronic conditions working as partners in their own healthcare. We provide programs and services that enable people to take control of their own health by gaining the confidence, skills and knowledge necessary to manage the physical, social and emotional aspects of life with chronic conditions.
To do this, both individuals and healthcare providers should understand and practice the principles of Self Management. Self Management workshops can be fully integrated into any clinical pathway including, diabetes, COPD and arthritis.
The Self Management Strategy is funded through the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care of Ontario and we also have an Advisory Network of stakeholders (including consumers) from across the region contributing to our work.
