Evidence-Based Health Coaching

The Newest Trend in Patient Engagement

The key to successful disease management is for patients to be engaged and to take on a proactive role in the process. Clinicians can offer support by providing encouragement and the tools and information that will help patients self-manage their diseases or conditions.

Not just for home health agencies! This one-hour discussion will explore what evidence-based health coaching is, how it works, why traditional methods have fallen short, and how it has achieved unparalleled success in guiding patients to change health behavior.

After this webinar, attendees will be able to:
  1. Define evidence-based health coaching
  2. Describe how it works to change health behavior
  3. Explain why traditional methods have fallen short
