Description

Over the past 10 years, more than 10,000 people have participated in Stanford on-line self-management programs (Chronic disease self-management, Arthritis Self-Management, Diabetes Self-Management, Building Better Caregivers, or Cancer Thriving and Surviving.) These are Internet based six week workshops facilitated by peers. All of the programs have been evaluated for changes in health behaviors, health status and health care utilization.

In this workshop, we will talk about how to design web based programs for people with major health problems, how to evaluate the programs,  how to recruit people to the programs  and finally how to keep people engaged in ongoing programs.

All of our program are built and evaluated with the people we serve.  The workshop will be structured as follows:

There will be a presentation on the program including how it was developed, how it is currently being used, and what we have learned from several outcome and engagement studies. Following this presentation, we will poll the audience for questions or areas about which they want more information.  Based on the desires of the participants, the remaining time will be focused on these key issues.

Dr. Kate Lorig served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Chile. She has been a faculty member at Stanford University School of Medicine in 1995 and is the director of the Stanford Patient Education Research Center. The focus of Dr. Lorig’s research has been the development, evaluation of self-management programs in English and Spanish for people with chronic diseases. Programs are delivered in small groups, via mail, and via the Internet. These studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of low cost self-management interventions in reducing symptoms and improving the quality of life. Dr. Lorig’s work is used in more than 20 countries by approximately 75,000 people a year. The Administration on Aging and Centers for Disease Control have been instrumental in the wide-spread use of the Stanford Self-Management Program in the United States.
