Printable Version

Introduction

In accordance with the Stanford University Licence Agreement for the Chronic Disease Self Management Program, the Tasmanian Department of Health and Human Services and the Tasmanian Health Service provides the following report for the period June 2015 - July 2016, with details of leader training, current leader activity, programs delivered and participant numbers attending.

In Tasmania the Stanford Chronic Disease Self Management Program is delivered as Get the Most Out of Life. The six-week group program (2.5 hours per week) is facilitated by trained leaders aiming to empower participants by providing practical tools, skills and techniques to support their health and assist them to get the most out of life.

Licence holders in Tasmania include both Government and Non-Government Organisations (NGO). The licence holders meet regularly as a Stanford Coordination Group and work collaboratively to enable delivery of the program across rural and regional areas of Tasmania.

At the time of reporting the licence holders in Tasmania are:

  • The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)
  • Tasmanian Health Service (THS)
  • Kidney Health Australia- NGO
  • Huon Eldercare-NGO

Leader Training

Leader training has been delayed as we negotiate to train new Master Trainers. Leader training for new leaders will be delivered at the same time. We are currently negotiating dates with Stanford T Trainers for the training to be delivered.

Master training support – leader updates

The annual leader updates are offered around the state and provide an opportunity for role play and revision of program activities (topics covered may be requested by leaders). Program guidelines and paperwork are reviewed and the calendar of programs for the coming year is developed. Leaders are required to attend an update bi annually.

Master Trainers

During the reporting period the Tasmanian Health Service supported two Master Trainers:

  • Julie Milnes, Tasmanian Health Service - North West Region
  • Michelle Nicholson, Tasmanian Health Service - Northern Region
