Improving health outcomes together
The role of a professional Health Coach
When you deliver a diagnosis to your patients, the news can be met with fear, shock, and confusion. People often have trouble processing health information and feel lost after their appointment. Having a health coach involved in your patient’s care increases engagement and helps them to create lasting lifestyle changes.
Whether your patient is newly diagnosed or living with a chronic illness, or wants a healthier lifestyle, our professional Health Coaches can provide support, strategies, and guidance to connect them with vital tools and community resources.
People have limited success adopting health-promoting lifestyles through prescriptive and expert educational approaches. In addition to the knowledge they acquire from the expertise of clinicians, to develop a wellness plan and have confidence in implementing it, new life skills are needed. Our health coaches focus on building self-efficacy, confidence, motivation in our clients, which is the key to lasting behaviour change.
