The Iowa Chronic Care Consortium(ICCC), a clinically focused population health organization dedicated to health risk reduction and chronic care management strategies, will host its leading Clinical Health Coach Onsite Training program this Spring. Registration is now open for the May-June program, which includes a combination of onsite and distance learning with 40 hours of intensive curriculum. The onsite classes will be held May 8-10, 2013 and June 12-13, 2013 in Des Moines, Iowa.
The Clinical Health Coach® Training Onsite is an interactive and gestational learning experience designed for healthcare professionals who desire to attain skills in health coaching and chronic care management through proactive, patient-centered strategies. This proven program builds on the philosophy that patients are the greatest untapped resource in reclaiming responsibility for their own health. Clinical Health Coach Training addresses the need many clinics and healthcare organizations have for a cost-efficient and trusted healthcare professional training program, including nurse training, to re-tool their workforce for the future of health care delivery.
“The ICCC Clinical Health Coach training opened my eyes to the fast-changing landscape of today’s health care and the vital role that health coaching plays. Not only are the members of the ICCC staff experts in their respective fields, together they also created a nurturing, supportive environment in which to learn and practice the critically important techniques of health coaching. My experience was truly transformational, both personally and professionally,” noted Kathy Miczulski, MS, of North Colorado Medical Center.
The six week training program is designed to “Transform the Conversation” and “Transform the Care” and addresses both patient engagement and best practice care management. At the culmination of the program, participants are offered the option of attaining a Certificate of Competency as a Clinical Health Coach® sponsored by the ICCC.
ICCC’s Clinical Health Coach® training programs serve as a trusted resource to assist clinics and healthcare organizations looking to address the specific care delivery demands and satisfy the quality metrics inherent in Patient Centered Medical Home and Accountable Care Organization initiatives. Ideal participants include registered nurses, care coordinators, case managers, registered dieticians, certified diabetes educators, medical assistants, pharmacists and others who work in medical settings that support patients with chronic conditions.
ICCC was created 10 years ago as a voluntary collaboration of public, private, academic and government organizations. Its purpose is to help organizations more effectively manage chronic diseases affecting people and to improve the health and productivity of individuals through proactive, patient-centered strategies for chronic condition management where they live and work. ICCC has expanded its role to provide training, consultation and evaluation services for organizations who wish to use a population health approach to improve patient outcomes.
