Through the National Society of Health Coaches!
While the ICHWC's attempt to standardize coaching certification standards internationally is a worthwhile effort, one certification does not meet the needs of all healthcare providers, nor all patients with varying acuity levels. In recognizing this distinct difference, the NSHC requires higher eligibility criteria for its Health Coach Certification; that which requires a current license, registration or certification to assess, plan, treat, implement and/or evaluate interventions in clinical and wellness settings.
Clinicians and practitioners should coach those with chronic conditions, co-morbidities, and high to moderate health risk for the same. NSHC's program of study is based on this premise. For this reason, the NSHC differentiates its Health Coach Certification and will remain independent of this consortium.
The National Society of Health Coaches is setting the gold standard for Evidence-based Health Coaching (EBHC)® in clinical practice. The model was first introduced in the summer of 2011 in North Carolina at the First Carolina Care CoachClinic®.
Experience the paradigm shift in thinking from a traditional patient/client approach to Evidence-based Health Coaching with Motivational Interviewing (MI)! This highly popular, interactive day-long event is hosted by your organization onsite at your location and facilitated by an NSHC Lead Coach.
Evidence-Based Health Coaching (EBHC)® and Motivational Interviewing (MI) skills, key critical components of skillful patient/client conversation are taught through personal self-assessments, case studies, group discussion, and practice, practice, practice!
It's not what we teach or what we prescribe, but rather how we converse with the patient that taps into his or her own motivation and reason for action that helps improve outcomes, change behaviors, reduce risks, and enhance prevention.
It has been our experience that when clinicians learn and understand how EBHC with MI is applied in practice, the paradigm shift is activated! The NSHC CoachClinic® provides the education and interactive practice to achieve this end! Read More...
