Health Coach Jobs: Health Coaching Patients
Now more than ever, primary care clinicians are struggling to meet the needs of their patients within the allotted 15-minute visit. Health Coaching is one way for doctors to ensure their patients understand, agree with, and participate in the management of their health conditions.
Health Coaches help patients gain the knowledge, skills, tools and confidence to become active participants in their healthcare so that they can reach their health goals.
Health Coaching has been shown to produce promising clinical benefits. Within the healthcare team, Health Coaches can be nurses, social workers, medical assistants, community health workers, and health educators.
Here are 3 ways Health Coaches support patients.
Health Coaches provide self-management support which is essential for patients to continue their healthcare within their real lives.
Health Coaches bridge the gap between doctor and patient by following up with patients and making sure they understand, agree with, and are following their care plan.
Health Coaches offer emotional support by showing interest, inquiring about emotional issues, showing compassion, and helping patients cope with their health issues.
