Is Health Coaching the Gut Microbiome for Whole Health Care Delivery?
In this two-part session, senior members of TEAM-UKIHCA will use the metaphor of the gut microbiome to liken the role of a qualified, professional health coach to that of the gut microbiome in transforming patient/client health outcomes. Just as the integrity and health of our gut microbiome is fundamental to supporting and transforming every aspect of our health… so the powerful discipline of health coaching, when placed at the centre of health care delivery, is fundamental to supporting and transforming patient health outcomes, health professionals’ practice and health systems’ delivery.
Part 1: 10:50 - 11:30 Workshop participants will learn how health coaching supports ‘whole-health’ lifestyle choices and behaviour change, how and where qualified, professional health coaches work and how their role is fundamental to building an effective multi-disciplinary team and will have an opportunity to ask questions.
Part 2 : 11:30 - 12:15 TEAM-UKIHCA will demonstrate health coaching in practice through a narrated role play and will welcome questions from workshop participants.
