Leader Training Opportunity:
This is an opportunity for your organization to be cross-trained as a Leader in Living Well with Chronic Pain and be able to offer this workshop in your community. Living Well with Chronic Pain provides information and offers practical skills on managing chronic health issues. The interactive curriculum includes topics such as:
- frustration, fatigue, isolation and poor sleep
- exercise for maintaining and improving strength, flexibility and endurance
- effective communication
- eating well
- pacing activity and rest periods
- evaluating new treatments
Workshops are facilitated by 2 trained leaders. Potential leaders must already be trained as a leader for Living Well with Chronic Conditions.
Organizations are encouraged to train at least 2 leaders or more as this allows for flexibility in scheduling community workshops.
