APNA's Chronic Disease Management and Healthy Ageing (CDMHA) foundational and intermediate programs provide an evidence-based education framework to support nurses in primary health care to increase their knowledge, skills, and confidence.

Who can participate in the CDMHA Programs

  1. Foundational program- nurses new to chronic disease management: Nurses currently working in a primary health care setting who would like to develop skills and knowledge in the implementation of Chronic Disease Management and Healthy Ageing.
  2. Intermediate program - Nurses experienced in chronic disease management: Nurses with foundational CDMHA skills interested in increasing knowledge in the areas of Cardiovascular Health, Diabetes, Mental Health, Cancer and Injury Prevention.
