The Chronic Disease Management Program (CDMP) combines two programs: Pulmonary Rehabilitation and the Heart Failure Program. Both of these programs are managed under the Complex Care Coordination Team. It is designed to help people with chronic disease live and function more independently at home with a strong focus on self-management principles. It is open to any client who has a chronic health issue, the acceptance into the program is determined by the Co-ordinator.
