About Us

 

Living Healthy North East is coordinated through Health Sciences North (HSN) and funded by the Local Health Integration Network. With this funding, HSN is responsible to coordinate, promote and facilitate self-management programs across North East Ontario for people living with chronic conditions and health care providers. 

The Chronic Disease Self-Management program seeks to empower individuals to cope with disease and live better quality lives by developing self-efficacy or a level of confidence in their ability to manage their own chronic conditions and interactions with the health care system and individual providers.  

'The Living Healthy North East workshops seeks to help health care providers with opportunities to enhance, support, facilitate, and implement contemporary self-management techniques and practices with their patients/clients to improve the management of their chronic disease. These opportunities include communication skills workshops, education, and skills training in self-management best practices, motivational interviewing, behaviour change theory (including the stages of change), problem solving, action planning, and collaborative goal-setting with trained instructors/facilitators in self-management programs.'  

Living Healthy North East provides a centralized program to improve coordination of and access to self-management supports, programs and resources for people with chronic conditions and health care providers.


Our Vision

People living with chronic conditions in North East Ontario will manage their health with greater confidence.
