Evaluation of the self care to wellness programme (SCWP)
Evans, David S; McSharry, Kathy; Lynott, Jackie
The HSE is committed to supporting people to self-manage long term health conditions. The Self Care to Wellness Programme (SCWP) is a community based self-management training programme for those with long term health conditions which commenced in county Mayo in January 2015. It is a joint partnership between the HSE, Mayo Centre of Independent Living (CIL), Disability Federation of Ireland (DFI) and the Multiple Sclerosis Society (MS). The six week Programme follows the Stanford Model for Chronic Disease Self Management (Lorig et al. 1999). The aim of the study was to obtain feedback from Programme participants in terms of its impact on managing their condition. All those that attended the programme between January and December 2015 were invited to complete a questionnaire at the beginning and six months after completing the Programme. The study utilised a number of validated measures, in addition to open ended questions to allow respondents to elaborate on their responses.
