Event description

Description

Effective implementation of Patient Activation and Health Coaching requires new knowledge, advanced practical skills, and a mind-set based on person centred care. Patient Activation is ‘an individual’s knowledge, skill, and confidence for managing their health and health care’ (Hibbard et al 2005). Research consistently finds that people who are more activated are engaged in more healthy behaviours and self-management activities, and that increasing activation can reduce burden on the health and care system and support people to enjoy higher levels of health and wellbeing.

Using Health Coaching to tailor service delivery according to patient activation levels can maximise productivity and efficiency by ensuring that the level of support provided is appropriate to the needs of the individual. Supporting staff to learn how to use these new approaches is a fundamental part of delivering a sustainable and effective healthcare service.
