Changes to the new 4th edition of Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions

The 4th edition of Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions has been completely revised  and updated to reflect the latest research and the experiences of thousands of workshop participants.

Every chapter has been extensively revised and updated; over one third of the material is new to the 4th edition.

How do I implement changes to the workshop when I was trained using an older edition of the book?
You can contact the Stanford Patient Education Research Center for more information about transitioning to the new edition. Their web address is http://patienteducation.stanford.edu/

The new table of contents below notes major changes in green.

Please contact Emily Sewell at emily@bullpub.com with any additional questions.
