      • The role of health coaching skills to support patients to achieve the best outcomes for them, while using health and social care services wisely and effectively;
      • An introduction to the bio-psycho-social model of health – aimed at the whole person;
      • The PCI Core Curriculum health coaching skills including active listening skills, goal-setting, goal follow-up and motivational interviewing techniques to support effective self-management and, where appropriate, behaviour change.
      • An effective evidence-based coaching conversation structure that guides the use of the skills when working with patients;
      • How to recognise patients at different levels of ‘activation’ and how to meet them where they are and support them around whatever’s important to them.
    • Who is this training aimed at?

      This training is aimed at:

      • Care Coordinators and Social Prescribing Link Workers (ARRS roles), who are required to complete a PCI-accredited 2-day training in Health Coaching Skills.  
      • anyone working directly with patients, or similar, to enable them to have ‘Better Conversations’ that support self-management..

      The groups are small – usually 9-12 participants – which allows for small group discussion, both in the main room and break-out rooms.

      There is the opportunity within the training to talk about how the skills are used effectively within individuals’ roles.
