Though similar to the English version, it was developed to be culturally appropriate. Spanish-speaking people with different chronic health problems attend this program. Workshops are facilitated by two trained certified and active program providers, one or both of whom are non-health professionals with a chronic disease themselves. All workshops are given in Spanish without translators.
Este es la versión en español del programa de autocuidado de enfermedades crónicas creada para hispanohablantes. Aunque similar a la versión en inglés, este programa fue desarrollado para ser culturalmente apropiado. Hispanohablantes que tienen enfermedades crónicas de salud asisten a este programa. Los talleres están facilitados por dos líderes cualificados, certificados y activos. Uno de ellos o los dos son promotores de salud, no son especialistas que trabajan en el campo de la salud, y así como los participantes ellos también tienen enfermedades crónicas. Todos los talleres se presentan en español sin la necesidad de traductores.
