South Riverdale Community Health Centre’s Choose Health program is an outcome of the Ontario Diabetes Strategy and is funded by the Toronto Central Local Health Integrated Network.
We provide evidence-informed programming that is designed to facilitate health behaviour change for individuals living with long term health conditions as well as their caregivers including the health care providers. Our city-wide services are offered within a range of health and social service sector settings.
For community based services, using an equity lens, we work with close to 40 unique health and social service sector organizations that offer a range of services to individuals living or accessing care in the Neighbourhood Improvement Areas within the TC LHIN region. To learn more about our partners, please visit this page and select ‘community program’ from the drop down menu: https://selfmanagementtc.ca/partners/list-of-choose-health-partners/
We also offer evidence-based training for health care providers that are grounded in motivational interviewing. These half to full day training opportunities are intended to improve health care communication between providers and patients with the goal of engendering self-management skills in patients with chronic conditions. To learn more about these services, please visit this page: https://selfmanagementtc.ca/program-category/healthcare-providers/
We also host programs and training that will reinforce the skills and activities individuals learn in our core services.
