Living a Healthier Life with Chronic Pain Workshop is a Self-Management Program (CPSMP) designed for people who have either a primary or secondary diagnosis of chronic pain (as defined as lasting for longer than 3 to 6 months or lasting longer than the normal healing time of an injury) and focuses on problem solving, appropriate usage of medications and exercise, nutrition, emotions and communicating with health care providers. The CPSMP is a workshop given over two and a half hours, once a week for six weeks.
The Chronic Disease, Chronic Pain and Diabetes Self- Management Program are all programs developed by the Division of Family and Community Medicine in the School of Medicine at Stanford University. They are all facilitated by two trained leaders, one or both of whom are peers that may also have the same condition as workshop participants.
