About NSHC Onsite CoachClinic®

NSHC Onsite CoachClinic®

This is a highly popular, interactive day-long event provided at your selected venue and is facilitated by an NSHC Lead Coach. Evidence-Based Health Coaching (EBHC)® and Motivational Interviewing (MI) skills, key critical components of successful patient/client engagement strategies are taught onsite through personal self-assessments, case studies, group discussion, and practice, practice, practice!

Historically, clinicians, for the most part, approach patient engagement activities using traditional thinking and concepts versus skillful conversation and partnership enhancing strategies to making "real" patient engagement happen. Moving into an effective engagement clinical model requires a paradigm shift in thinking by clinicians and providers alike. It's this paradigm shift or lack of it, that can affect the success or failure of patient engagement activities.

We may not realize it, but we as providers talk a lot about what we can do to make something happen for the patient, (e.g., bedside rounds, shift report at the bedside, patient representative on our Boards, use of special tools, EMRs or other, but rarely do we hear providers talk about what we can do to generate the patient's active role in managing their health.

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 their outcomes, change behaviors, reduce risks, and enhance prevention. It has been our experience that when clinicians learn about and understand how EBHC is the vehicle in which skillful conversations using MI techniques are applied in practice, the paradigm shift is activated, and the NSHC CoachClinic® provides the education and interactive activities to achieve this end.
