How does VHA help navigate Chronic Disease and Self-Management?
A chronic disease is one that has been, or is likely to be, present for six months or longer. A chronic disease can be a condition you have had for a period of time or it could be something that is new to you.
VHA is committed to working with you to learn more about chronic disease self-management (CDSM) by helping you to:
- learn specific treatment regimens for your conditions
- teach you how to avoid/reduce unhealthy behaviours
- work with you to adopt healthy behaviours
