Benchmarque: Chronic Disease Support Program

The Chronic Disease Support Program is a nationally accredited program and is fully funded by the Federal Department of Health under the Chronic Disease Support Project.

The Chronic Disease Support Program is designed for health professionals, and others working within Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health, who are new to the field of chronic disease self-management.

The program explores a range of topics including assessing risk factors, readiness for change in health behaviours, while working with both the client and health professionals to develop a chronic disease self-management plan.

This nationally accredited program is driven by a desire to create better health for clients, reduce hospital admissions, better patient compliance and the provision of care by those best qualified to provide advice. On successful completion of the programs, students should have the ability to support practitioners to work collaboratively with people managing chronic disease.

The one-day workshop session involves several interactive group activities covering various aspects of chronic disease self-management, developing a chronic disease self-management plan and group case studies.

Course delivery and assessment for the Chronic Disease Support Program includes a one-day face-to-face workshop, in-class activities assessed by facilitator, and an online assessment completed via BenchmarqueIQ.
