National Society of Health Coaches

HCAF is pleased to announce our alliance with the National Society of Health Coaches (NSHC) in order to provide HCAF members great discounts on NSHCs health coach education and certification program: Evidence-based Health Coaching (EBHC)® for Healthcare Providers, 4th Ed.

Ranked first in the nation among the most popular health coaching programs, it is uniquely designed for the busy healthcare professional and allied healthcare provider!

Evidence Based Health Coaching (EBHC®), founded in the science of Motivational Interviewing (MI), is a style of engaging the patient/client that guides (not directs) the agenda and taps into his/her own personal motivation to change unhealthy behavior. Unlike our traditional health teaching methods we've used in the past, NSHC's program includes MI concepts and strategies to help achieve this end. 

Approved for 42 continuing education contact hours through Scully Health Mgt for Nursing and PT, the American College of Sports Medicine, and the CDR, NSHC's program is designed to actively engage patients/clients to maintain optimal health and wellness, and reduce or minimize acute exacerbations associated with chronic conditions that affect quality outcomes and cost.
