Condition Management Programme

The Condition Management Programme helps you manage your health condition to allow you to progress towards, move into and stay in employment. The programme is led by healthcare professionals, such as occupational therapists, physiotherapists and mental health nurses.

About the Condition Management Programme

The Condition Management Programme provides support and advice to help clients manage conditions including:

  • arthritic complaints
  • back and neck problems
  • chronic fatigue
  • depression
  • pain
  • stress
  • heart, circulatory and respiratory disorders

The programme will help you to:

  • better understand your condition
  • improve your day to day functioning
  • increase your confidence
  • improve your prospects of returning to work or staying in work

It offers advice, education and support on:

  • coping with pain and fatigue
  • relaxation techniques
  • communicating with confidence
  • developing a healthier lifestyle
  • exploring potential options that will help you progress towards employment or help you make a successful return to work

If the programme is suitable for you,  healthcare professionals will give you an action plan to help you manage your condition. They will work with you and support you as the action plan is delivered.

The Condition Management Programme can last up to 12 weeks. Sessions are on a one-to-one basis, with the opportunity to go to group workshops.
