Coaching for Health Courses 2022

November 3 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm


What is Coaching for Health?

A coaching approach enables health and social care professionals to empower patients and clients to take ownership of their health goals and, by working together, develop the commitment to achieving them. Studies have shown that this collaborative approach increases the likelihood of positive behavioural and lifestyle changes, producing more effective patient self-management, particularly in long-term conditions.

Who is it for?

The course is open to health professionals working in North East London, including: l GPs l Pharmacists l First Contact Practitioners l Nurses l Social Prescribing Link Workers l Health and Wellbeing Coaches l Care Coordinators l Advanced Nurse Practitioners l Dieticians l Paramedics l HCAs l Physician Associates l Podiatrists l Occupational Therapists l Physiotherapists l Mental Health Practitioners l Nursing Associates l District Nurses l Network Facilitators.

This course has been run for well over 2,000 health and social care professionals over the last seven years. Three months after the training, well over 50% of those evaluated indicated that they were regularly using the skills with patients, and under 1% stated that they never used them. 97% indicated they would recommend the course to a colleague.

The course
