Q: Will my attendance in BCBH or information that I share during the workshop be automatically communicated to my health care providers?
A: No, the information that you share during the workshop will not be communicated to your health care providers. You are encouraged to talk with your providers about your participation in the workshop.
Q: What are the benefits to me from participating in BCBH?
A: Program participants report benefits such as: fewer symptoms, better communication with health care providers, a greater sense of control over their health, increased physical activity, and better general health. You will learn about making an action plan, relaxation techniques, dealing with difficult emotions, fitness/exercise, better breathing, eating well, communication, fatigue/pain monitoring, medication management, and more. Furthermore, you will have opportunities to problem solve with others living with chronic conditions who are going through similar experiences.
Q: Can I participate in BCBH on my phone?
A: Yes, you can participate on your smart phone. The content will adjust to the size of the screen you are using (computer, tablet, or smart phone). However, reading program content and typing responses on the bulletin board may be easier to do from a computer or tablet.
