Welcome to Talking Health Taking Action: Your One Stop Shop for Self-Management Support
Any organisation providing Self-Management Resource Centre (SMRC) programmes must purchase a licence.
The exception to this rule applies to those working within the Department of Health, NHS, social services and local authorities in England who are covered by a separate licence agreement between Stanford University and the Department of Health.
Whether you are receiving training from an SMRC Trainer, Master Trainer or T-Trainer or a non-SMRC Trainer, Master Trainer or T-Trainer your organisation must first obtain a licence.
The license agreement is valid for 3 years from the date of issue, except for those working under the Department of Health licence (see above). After each three year interval, licenses must be renewed.
You can purchase a single-programme licence or a multiple-programme licence
Once you have a licence you can purchase a PDF of the manual for the programme you wish to deliver.
