Personal Action Toward Health – PATH
PATH is Michigan’s name for the Stanford Chronic Disease Self-Management Program.
The PATH program is a workshop developed and tested at the Stanford Patient Education Research Center. More than 1,000 people with chronic health conditions were followed in a randomized, controlled study for up to three years. Participants in the study that took the program compared to those that did not, have self-reported improvements in general health, fatigue, communications with physicians and social/role activities limitations. They also spent fewer days in the hospital and showed a trend of fewer outpatient visits. PATH is facilitated for two and a half hours a week, once a week, for six weeks. Over the six weeks, emphasis is placed on creating personal, practical and achievable goals.
R-Team™ (Reshaping thru Exercise, Attitudes and Meals) aims to ensure that kids and teens, along with their families, receive lifestyle training and education that empowers them to use positive self-management skills to live a healthier life. Led by a team comprised of a registered dietitian, exercise specialist, wellness coach and registered nurse, the R-Team™ program consists of ten 90-minute sessions. Sessions include interactive educational games as well as instruction on incorporating exercise, healthy food choices and positive body image into everyday life.
