In  addition  participants  learn  or  enhance their problem-solving and decision-making skills  which  enable  them  to  confront  the ever-changing challenges of living with chronic health conditions. The course is facilitated by two trained volunteers. Participants are invited to bring a family member, friend and/or caretaker.

▪ Better coping strategies and symptom management
