Peer-to-peer support for managing physical and emotional well-being among patients
Patients are oftentimes managing more than doctor’s appointments and lab work follow-through when it comes to living – and living well – with chronic illness. Join patient advocate and author, Kerri Sparling, for a discussion about how patients are turning to peer-to-peer support for assistance in managing their physical and emotional well-being. Using examples of advocacy and outreach from the Diabetes Online Community (DOC), Kerri will illustrate how patients with diabetes are changing their personal healthcare landscapes in addition to helping shape the diabetes discussion on a national, and global, level.
This webinar is presented by The Office of Integrated Healthcare Research and Policy in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. The webinar series is made possible with funding from the California Mental Health Services Authority Integrated Behavioral Health Project in partnership with the Collaborative Family Healthcare Association, the AHRQ Academy for Integrating Behavioral Health and Primary Care, and the Advancing Care Together project of UC-Denver Dept. of Family Medicine.
