The Clinical Health Coach Training Onsite
Individuals with chronic conditions drive 80% of the total cost of healthcare today. Better health behaviors, more patient accountability and higher levels of self-care have proven to reduce ER visits and hospitalizations and progression of chronic conditions. Herein lies the opportunity for health coaching.
Healthcare organizations and individuals seeking to implement a clinical role in coaching and care management of individuals with chronic conditions, have available a robust training program.
The Training Experience
The Clinical Health Coach training is an experience-oriented 6 week program, book-ended by 3 onsite days at the beginning and 2 days at the end as a capstone to the learning. The performance orientation of the Clinical Health Coach training is progressive and gestational. Participants actually build skills to engage and activate individuals toward new levels of self-care and health behavior change. This is accomplished through weekly tele-classes and coaching practice sessions over the 6 week period.
