Cypress Health Region – Chronic Disease Management (CDM)

Information:

Healthy living focuses on prevention, the management of chronic conditions, encouraging support for self-care and the understanding that factors outside of the health system can influence individual and community health. It is about keeping you well, rather than just treating you after you have become sick. As the Cypress Health Region works toward bringing a primary health care approach to more and more communities, you may see some changes in how you access care. One of these changes is a more deliberate, formalized health care team approach. This approach gives you access to a team of health professionals, including some you see already (like a family doctor or nurse practitioner) and maybe some you haven’t considered before (certified diabetic educator, pharmacist, physiotherapist, midwife, health educator, or dietitian).You are not alone, let’s work together toward a healthy lifestyle and manage chronic conditions effectively
