Funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, Living Healthy Champlain coordinates, promotes and facilitates self-management programs across the Champlain Local Health Integration Network.

Self-management programs seek to empower individuals to cope with disease and live better quality lives by developing self-efficacy or a level of confidence in their ability to manage their own chronic conditions and interactions with the health care system and individual providers. Living Healthy Champlain provides a centralized program to improve coordination of and access to self-management supports, programs and resources for people with chronic conditions.


Volunteer Opportunities

The “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain” workshop is a licensed program developed and researched at Stanford University. It follows a standardized format that is proven to help people learn to better manage the symptoms of chronic conditions.

Workshop groups meet once a week for 2½ hours, over six weeks. The workshop teaches skills for living a healthy life.

The workshop is led by two leaders who have taken the Peer Leader Training.

Peer Leader Training is four 8-hour days on September 5, 6, 12, 13 at 43 Bruyere st. Ottawa, ON.

Light breakfast, lunch and refreshments provided, training will be provided in English.

The Chronic pain program can then be lead in French or English.
