CLINICAL HEALTH COACHING

What is Health Coaching?

Clinical health coaching is typically conducted in the context of disease prevention and/or chronic condition self-management within public and private sector health services. Clinical health coaches also work in the area of human performance. It is suitable for interdisciplinary teams of health professionals within chronic disease prevention, early intervention, rehabilitation and other chronic condition self-management programs as well as to support optimal health and wellness.

Clinical health coaching techniques enable efficient use of consultation time by focusing on what patients can actively do to improve their health. The Model promotes patients’ responsibility for their own health management. Consultations can be face-to-face, telephone- or video-based or within a group setting.

Current Clinic Programming :
One on One Health Coaching

Patients bring to the coach information and recommendations from their treatment providers and work with the coach to decide which ones to enact and most importantly how to do so in a way they can gain and sustain the skills necessary to improve their overall health outcomes. Our clinical health coaches also help connect client/patients with both internal and external resources and referrals appropriate to the needs of the client/patient

Biometric Screening & Health Coaching Session

Health Coaches perform a basic biometric screen including blood pressure and a lipid panel (non-fasting blood glucose and non-fasting cholesterol). Screening results are discussed with the client and the remainder of the hour long session is focused on client-driven goal setting for improved overall health outcomes. Referrals to appropriate health professionals may be offered if needed.
