Need for Health & Wellness Coach

Healthcare is becoming a strategic coordination of a team of experts in health management.  True reform hinges on creating a healthcare culture that is focused on patient self-motivation through behavioural and inspirational support from qualified healthcare professionals. In other words, this means embracing health coaching.
True healthcare reform springs from the capacity of individuals in a population to build self-care skills, improve their health behaviours and accept accountability for their health. It is not about giving motivation but inspiring it.”  - William Applegate, PhD, executive director of Iowa Chronic Care Consortium.
