A proven self-management guide 

A culturally adapted French Canadian translation of Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions.

People with chronic health conditions live most of their lives outside of hospitals and clinics. This book is designed to help them learn the information and skills to manage chronic conditions on a daily basis while doing the things they need and want to do.

This new edition is completely redesigned for easy reading and fully updated with the latest research and information. The book is a vital resource full of practical tips, suggestions, and strategies to build confidence in managing chronic illness and symptoms, such as fatigue, pain, shortness of breath, disability, and depression. It encourages readers to develop individual approaches to setting goals, making decisions, and finding resources and support.

Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions has helped hundreds of thousands of people with chronic illness gain their greatest possible physical potential and to once again get pleasure from life. Its simple goal is to help anyone with a chronic illness to live a productive, healthy life.

The proven practices for self-management are based on an ongoing series of studies conducted at Stanford University School of Medicine. The content has been enriched by the feedback of medical and other professionals and thousands of people with chronic conditions all over the world.
