CLASSES

Living Well with Chronic Conditions

Living Well with Chronic Conditions is a class offered by the NTAS to help people who are struggling with any chronic condition to learn the tools that enable them to self-manage their symptoms. In this course, participants learn how to identify problems, act on those problems, learn how to generate a short-term action plan and problem-solving skills related to chronic conditions in general. Participants receive support to help them deal with frustration, fatigue, pain and isolation, how to communicate effectively with family, friends and health professionals. 

Living Well with Chronic Conditions is a free six series class, 1 session per week and 2 hours per sessions facilitated by staff members of the NTAS.
