Description:Used in combination with traditional medical treatment, health coaching can help improve outcomes by getting patients more involved in their own health. Coaching for Health is a free telephone or video conference lay coaching program designed to help people living with pain learn self-management skills, regain function and improve their well-being.
Coaching for Health aims to assist primary care practitioners who are working with patients (18+yrs) who have a diagnosis of a chronic pain condition, or have been living with persistent pain for at least six months. Pain BC's volunteer coaches are trained in highly specialized coaching techniques that use transformative dialogue to empower people to change unhelpful health-related behaviours, and establish and sustain helpful ones.
Key words: chronic pain, self-management, coaching
