Expert Patients poster

The Education Programmes for Patients is a NHS based training programme that provides opportunities to people who live with long-term health conditions to develop new skills to manage their conditions more effectively on a day-to-day basis, with these skills they can make a tangible impact on their disease and quality of life.

 

The courses can also help to manage emotional changes brought on by pain, stress, fear, anger and depression. The course covers a range of topics including the importance of nutrition and exercise, dealing effectively with pain and fatigue, planning for the future, communicating with family, friends and health care professionals

 

The Education Programmes for Patients assist in returning a sense of control to the individual, and they can participate at their own pace with the support of people who are facing similar problems. All the courses are free of charge, 2½ hr session over six weeks in a community venue they are led by volunteer trainers who themselves live with a long term health.
