Video project

Health coaching changes lives

Total Healthcare has produced a video to showcase patient stories about their experiences with the health coaching and self-management courses we contribute funding to.

Asking patients to create their own stepping stones to improve their health and using everyday language, not medical jargon, is a winning recipe.

It’s proving a game changer in helping people to better manage their health, including diabetes and mental wellness.

The trained health coaches are peers who are multicultural and share similar languages and cultures to the people they help.

Total Healthcare’s use of peer health coaches to help diabetics is a New Zealand first.
