Patient Safety Tool: Chronic Disease Self-Management Program Toolkit

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality offers a free toolkit on implementing a program to help patients with chronic diseases learn to self-manage.

Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring, Md., created the toolkit for the Maryland Department of Aging to help other hospitals implement the Stanford University Chronic Disease Self-Management Program. CDSMP is an evidence-based program designed to help patients with chronic conditions learn self-management skills.

The toolkit covers implementation of CDSMP, including the timeline, budget, fact sheets and other resources.
