We are recruiting volunteers to work as Chronic Disease Self-management Leaders and Peer Support Workers with people with chronic complex conditions (ME/CFS and fibromyalgia pain and fatigue syndromes).

Volunteers will be involved in one-to-one and group self-management programs and health coaching and providing ongoing support alongside practice nurse case managers.

The activities are part of the pilot for a general practice clinic to provide early intervention for patients living with poorly understood complex conditions. The activities will be based on validated chronic disease management approaches to care applied specifically to ME/CFS and fibromyalgia.

Volunteer hours are flexible.
