Training opportunities for self-management leaders in Cavan-Monaghan
Arthritis Ireland is looking to recruit two people to be trained as leaders of their award-winning self-management programme in the Cavan-Monaghan area.
Leaders on the self-management course help people to discover how to manage their arthritis more effectively through the knowledge, skills and techniques of self-management. Some 6,000 people have undertaken the Living Well with Arthritis course since it was launched in 2006.
Leaders are typically people living with arthritis or health care professionals.
The training is delivered by the HSE and takes place in Letterkenny on four dates: 11, 12, 21 and 22 June from 9.30am-5.30pm each day. Training is free and participants receive lunch/refreshments and materials. Travel expenses and cost of accommodation are covered.
Living Well with Arthritis has been proven to be an important part of effective arthritis treatment by decreasing pain, reducing reliance on health professionals and medication, and improving the overall sense of well-being.
