There is an urgent need for healthcare providers to promote sustained health behaviour change in order to improve chronic disease management. Research shows that behaviour change improves health outcomes and that healthcare providers can make a meaningful impact on patients’ health behaviours. However, most health care providers have little training, and therefore low confidence in, behaviour change skills. This workshop provides concrete, applicable skills based on the latest research that healthcare providers can use to support health behaviour change and chronic disease management.
When offered as a two day workshop, we also include professional readiness training. This program is based on an evidence based program designed to provide healthcare providers skills to manage the stress of change and improve adoption of behaviour change skills into their clinical practice.
Recommended length: 1 or 2 day workshop*
