Abstract

This pilot project developed, implemented, and evaluated the Stanford Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) with sheltered homeless adults (N=10). Participants demonstrated positive change in self-rated health, health distress, self-efficacy, exercise behaviors, and communication. The CDSMP may be effective with homeless clients if additional incentives are incorporated to overcome barriers to success.


Keywords-chronic illness, homeless clients, community health, self-efficacy
