PARTNERS4HEALTH - The Solution
The Solution To stay healthy with a chronic medical condition, one must not only understand what their medical condition is but also what they can change in their current lifestyle to help them minimize the impact of the condition on their quality of life. Knowing what to do is only the first step. Knowing how to make a lifestyle change is also needed to ensure life long changes that will have the most impact and positive results to improve your quality of health. The chronic care model (CCM) of health, which is significantly different than the acute care model, is a shared and proactive approach to the patient and their medical condition. A primary goal in the CCM is to prepare the patient to appropriately self-manage their condition according to the doctors plan of care-to limit the acute and long-term complications of the condition and increase your quality of life. Without these self-management skills, escaping the day-to-day symptoms and the long-term complications of the condition, are almost impossible. PARTNERS4HEALTH WILL TEACH YOU THESE SKILLS. If making lifestyle changes were easy to do, everyone would be able to do them and everyone would be healthy. As we know this is not true, gaining the knowledge and experience of a Nurse Health Coach can mean the difference in learning how to stay healthy or continued visits to an Emergency Department or hospital for condition flare ups.
