Welcome to Talking Health Taking Action: Your One Stop Shop for Self-Management Support

Self-Management Resource Center

Stanford Logo

After more than 30 years, the Stanford Patient Education Research Center is closing and moving off campus with a new name, the Self-Management Resource Center.

As Kate's research career is winding down, there is no longer a place at Stanford for the Stanford Patient Education Research Center.

A new company, the Self-Management Resource Center has been developed. The transition will take several months and they hope to have it completed by August.

The new website (the backbone of the Self-Management Resource Center) is up. Visit them here.

FAQ on the new website here.

Six webinars to answer questions in the next couple of weeks. Just register here from the Stanford Patient Education Research Centre website.
