Healthy Me Lifestyle Coaching
Healthy Me Lifestyle Coaching bridges the gap between the idea of change and the reality of change. Our coaches actively listen, educate, and provide resources to empower small, incremental shifts which encourage sustainable healthier habits. Healthy Me Lifestyle Coaching also helps patients bridge the gap between receiving medical recommendations and the participant's ability to successfully implement those medical recommendations into their complex lives.
This course is intended for physicians and APCs with patients who have a BMI greater than or equal to 30 kg/m2.
At the end of this session, learners should be able to:
- State why best practice evidence supports the use of coaching as an important interventional component that helps patients, with a BMI greater than or equal to 30 kg/m2, achieve sustainable weight loss.
- Understand the cognitive behavioral strategies used by coaches when assisting patients with weight loss.
- Understand the process within the Advocate Aurora organization on how to refer patients, the details of the coaching program, who the coaches are, and what expert training these coaches have achieved.
