Individual Telephonic Health Coaching
The COACH Program, run by Western Sydney Local Health District, helps people with a chronic disease, such as diabetes, heart and lung disease, to manage their risk factors while working in partnership with their usual doctor/s.
Each patient with a chronic disease is allocated their personal coach. The coach will work with the patient, either on the telephone or by mailing out information in a series of regular coaching sessions over 6 months. The coach helps the patient to maintain their health by setting and achieving health goals for themselves.
