PATH (Personal Action Toward Health) is Michigan’s name for the Stanford Chronic Disease Self-Management Program. It was developed and tested by Stanford University to help people learn techniques and strategies for the day-to-day management of chronic or long-term health conditions.
 

PATH Leader Training


 
Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP)
 
This 4-day training will certify you to become a Program Leader for the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program. You will learn how to facilitate the program and train others to manage symptoms, communicate with health care professionals, problem solve, set weekly action plans, learn about healthy eating, and how to deal with fear, pain, fatigue, frustration and depression.
 
Diabetes Self-Management Program (DSMP)
 
The 4-day Diabetes Self-Management Program training will certify you as a Program Leader. It goes over much of the same information as the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program.

PATH Workshops
