Innovation Readiness Assessment: Chronic Disease Self-Management Program

NCOA is using the Innovation Readiness Assessment to accelerate dissemination of the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP), a peer-led program that helps older adults cope with and better manage conditions like hypertension, arthritis, heart disease, stroke, lung disease, and diabetes.

The program provides information and teaches practical skills on managing chronic health problems. CDSMP gives people the confidence and motivation they need to manage the challenges of living with a chronic health condition.

Use this tool to see if your organization is ready to implement CDSMP.
