15 Information Line Pathway with a Long-term Medical Condition Diagnosis of MS 7 years ago Used local services including MS Therapy Centre Read widely Worked with my health professionals Kept to diet and exercise programmes Who needs an Expert Patients Programme?

16 Information Line What I found The tutors lived with MS and osteoporosis People owned their suggestions and acted on them Mutual support from peers Growth in confidence

17 Information Line A key choice Most of us had strong feelings- –Frustration, depression, anger Will we be victims? –Muddling through Will we exert more control? –Practice new skills

18 Information Line My choice My old excuses lost validity –Too tired –Its too much trouble Fellow participants were embracing a more positive outlook

19 Information Line Nothing New The programme topics include –Diet –Exercise –Relaxation methods –Finding resources in the community –Communication It is much easier to practice these with others who are similarly affected

20 Information Line Communication with Health Care Professionals It is easy to be overwhelmed by the frustration and, There is no cure The programme encouraged us to be –Realistic –Clear –Informed

21 Information Line Emotional support One tutor was quite ill, the group provided emotional support She knew and valued their support because it came from people with a personal understanding of living with a chronic condition

22 Information Line Comments from health and social care professionals Patients expertise is helpful Doing unto replaced by partnership.
