North Central London: Coaching for Health (3)


Dates: Fridays, 14 & 28 Jun 2024 (09:30 - 13:00)

Audience: All health professionals working in primary care 

The Coaching for Health course is now available to health and care professionals across the NCL ICS. The two half-day sessions are free to attend and support patient/client self-care and behaviour change, particularly around the management of long-term conditions. 

The sessions will cover: 

  • An introduction to a coaching approach for behavioural change 

  • Coaching skills for building openness, trust and willingness 

  • Frameworks for structuring brief health coaching interventions 

  • Setting effective goals with patients that encourage self-care 

  • Shared decision making and care planning techniques 

  • Working with barriers and resistance to change (cognitive, emotional, behavioural) 

  • When and how to use coaching in different settings and in limited consultation times 

  • Skills for challenging and dealing with difficult conversations  

Coaching-style conversations can improve health outcomes, increase patient satisfaction, improve practitioner wellbeing and morale, and reduce the use of NHS resources.
