Brief summary
The Internet Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (ICDSMP) is a pilot study of our
existing, previous approved, Chronic Disease Self-Management Program Online. The online
programme will be offered to 300 people with chronic disease in South Australia and evaluated
for effectiveness, as well as satisfaction of both the South Australian peer facilitators and
the participants with chronic disease. All participants will be recruited by the State of
South Australia, after which they will complete informed consent and a questionnaire on a
secure website housed at Stanford. They will take a 6-week online self-management program in
groups of 20-25, and they fill our additional online questionnaires at 6 month and one year.
