What is Coaching for Health?
A coaching approach enables healthcare professionals to empower their patients 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.
