The Nurse Health Coach Conference


A raft of lifelong conditions require energy-intense efforts from both individuals and nurses for long-term wellness to be sustained. Traditional biomedical models tend to focus on advice giving and often fail to address the complex set of psychological factors that affect behaviour change. Attend this conference to discover how health coaching principles can support you, to enable people with chronic diseases to move from a point of illness to a state of wellness. Topics include:

  • An exploration of nurse health coaching
  • Converting goals and intentions into behaviour

  • Why boundaries are essential AND how to make them stick
  • Practical strategies to overcome barriers to behaviour change
  • How to develop self-awareness around your own wellbeing and much, much more…

Need for Program

The total wellbeing of a patient can easily be forgotten in the urgency of functional care and technological practices. However, the importance of caring for the whole person cannot be underestimated in today’s fast and demanding health setting. The healing value of holism takes into account the mind-body-spirit within the context in which a person lives. Incorporating health coaching principles into modern health care enables nurses to support people with chronic diseases to move from a point of illness to state of wellness. As well, there is evidence that holistic care and health coaching have positive health and job satisfaction benefits for nurses. This event is timely to avert the rising rates of chronic disease and nurse burnout.
