‘Coaching for Health and Well-Being’

A 2 day skills Development Programme for THT frontline Staff

Day 1: 18th January 2019 (Education Centre, Mile end)

Day 2: 22nd January 2019 (Bernie Cameron Community Centre, Merchant Street)

What is ‘Coaching for Health and Well-Being’?

‘Coaching for Health and Well-Being’ is a way of using coaching models and techniques to actively support people to self-care. It involves a move away from a dependent model to one that is person centred, empowering, based around shared decision making and a person’s own aspirations and goals. It combines coaching, psychology and behaviour change techniques to enable transformative conversations in a health, care and well-being setting.

Why are we using this approach?

THT is changing the way that we work. Teams are being asked to deliver person-centred, integrated care. Coaching for Health and Well-Being skills supports this new way of working . Tower Hamlets Together is funding this programme to support these changes. You will be able to use coaching techniques to change the conversations you have with patients, service users, their families and carers to encourage shared decision making and person centred care. Additional benefits include:

· Increased patient activation

· Increases in preventative behaviours and self-management

· Improved 2 way communication and partnership working

· Long term sustained benefits in terms of cost reductions and service development

· Reported increase in job satisfaction amongst health and care professionals actively using the approach

Programme Content

The programme is highly experiential with many opportunities to build on the skills you already have, practice new skills, share experiences, develop relationships and network with your colleagues. You will cover:

· The coaching process and its application to health, care and well-being

· Encouraging activation and self-management

· Shared decision-making and personalization

· Understanding motivation and readiness to change
