About Course

Learning the Ropes is a self-paced online course designed for patients and care partners who are looking for information and strategies for:

  • Working with growing healthcare teams,
  • Developing support networks,
  • Managing self-care and the non-medical aspects of wellness that can get crowded out of the picture, and
  • Planning legal and financial issues that arise with a change to your life.

There are 12 learning modules that take you through the process of building and using a patient binder, analysing and building your support networks, learning why and how real self-care is a radical act (hint: we’re not talking mani-pedis – not that you can’t have them!) and taking a look at the basics of legal and financial planning areas that are commonly affected by a critical or chronic illness – for patients and care partners.

Participants have access to the course content and discussion boards. 

Course Fee: $97 Currently $59.95
