Advancing Best Practice in Health Coaching and Care Management
Health Coaching in the clinical setting is commonly paired with smart care management strategies. They go hand in hand. Coaching skills help uncover patient motivations and challenges, bringing patient goals and perspectives to the plan of care. However, integrating health coaching with care management is often inconsistent — not fully understood by the entire care team. Communicating patient preferences, goals and barriers is foundational to co-creating a care plan that actively engages patients and inspires full care team support. More than ever, the communications skills AND role of the health coach/care manager influence the effectiveness of chronic care, and patient health outcomes.
Advancing Best Practice in Health Coaching and Care Management is the newest training being offered by The Iowa Chronic Care Consortium (ICCC), founder of Clinical Health Coach training. This “next-level” course targets those who have completed either Clinical Health Coach Fusion or v-Fusion. It expands upon the foundational skills of motivational interviewing and provides a roadmap to creating a sustainable care management model. It builds performance capacity. ICCC is pleased to be partnering with HealthTeamWorks, a national leader in care management training, organizational development and performance improvement.
