According to a recent study, individuals living with chronic disease saved more than $700 annually after participating in a self-management program. "Self-management programs empower individuals and give them the confidence and skillset necessary to do more to manage their chronic disease(s) outside of a clinical setting," explained Vicki Palmreuter, Master Trainer and Outreach Ambassador for Better Choices, Better Health, the self-management program brought to South Dakotans through a partnership of SDSU Extension, S.D. Department of Health and S.D. Department of Social Services. An extension of Stanford University's Chronic Disease Self-Management Program, the community-led Better Choices, Better Health is a six-week, in-person or online program, which provides individuals living with chronic disease with peer support and evidencebased skills proven to help manage chronic disease. The program has a 20-year track record of success and is offered in all 50 states and internationally. South Dakotans have participated in Better Choices, Better Health since 2014. Better Choices, Better Health is partially funded through a grant from the Prevention and Public Health Fund. With nearly 85 percent of South Dakotans older than 50 living with one or more chronic diseases Palmreuter says Better Choices, Better Health is making a difference locally. "Everything is harder when you have a chronic condition," explained Palmreuter, who knows what she is talking about. Actively involved with Better Choices, Better Health program, at 43, Palmreuter lives with three chronic diseases. "This program improves overall health outcomes because it doesn't focus on the chronic disease, but instead it focuses on the individual. The program helps participants develop problemsolving, decision-making and other life skills which help them take the steps they know are necessary to live a healthier, more fulfilled life," Palmreuter said. As a result, participation in Better Choices, Better Health is also shown to lower depression. "Half of participants showed to be less depressed after the course," said Neal Kaufman, founder and chief medical officer of Canary Health, the organization which manages the digital component of Better Choices, Better Health. The study Kaufman references surveyed more than 1,000 Better Choices, Better Health participants. "When an individual has one or more chronic conditions, they need to make multiple decisions every day, the sum of which will determine their overall health outcome. After participating in this program, individuals have a lasting change in their overall attitude," Kaufman said. "This program helps them develop the capacity and confidence to manage life and their new role as someone living with a chronic condition - manage their emotions, manage conditions and manage relationships successfully."
