"We believe that you can change behaviors, and if you partner with patients, the likelihood of that is improving. Thatís part of what we think is an important ingredient in a health coach training program. You need to use a health coaching approach, which is different than an educational approach. Your job doesnít end when youíve told somebody to do something; it ends or it moves forward. The journey continues when you get better outcomes with that individual and they are more capable in self-care."
