Chronic Disease Management 10: Maximizing Your Health in the Digital Age

The Critical Path Learning Center (CPLC) at Philadelphia FIGHT Community Health Centers will design a series of 10 health and wellness workshops called “Chronic Disease Management 10 (CDM10): Maximizing Your Health in the Digital Age” that will leverage NLM online resources and mobile applications to support those who are living with chronic diseases. The workshops support learners in managing their health beyond the clinician’s office and integrating NLM and NNLM resources into their health management strategies, enabling learners to increase their knowledge and skills around chronic illnesses common in our patient population. Each workshop will include the use of a phone application or online health management tool to help participants increase their digital health literacy skills. CDM10 will reach 100 participants by: • Developing an engaging curriculum covering 10 chronic disease topics that are the most common illnesses among Philadelphia FIGHT’s health center population such as diabetes, hypertension, HIV, hepatitis C, and other chronic conditions impacting our communities. • Incorporating digital literacy instruction through the curation of reliable online health information such as Medline Plus, recommended apps, and/or websites to support healthy living, across numerous devices. • Providing one-on-one sessions with Learning Center staff to monitor and address challenges and barriers to using online health management tools and health management apps.
