Neuner-Jehle, Stefan; Schmid, Margareta; Grüninger, Ueli (2014). Kurzberatung in der Arztpraxis zur Verbesserung des Gesundheitsverhaltens: Probleme und Lösungen. Praxis, 103(5):271-277.

Abstract

Health related behaviour is a main determinant of chronic disease. Family physicians have an important role in the support of patients to improve their health behaviour, but relevant barriers should be addressed. In the new "Health Coaching KHM" program, patients and physicians are working as a team in four steps (sensitize - create motivation - plan - act). In this process, physicians' communication skills (which are trained within the program) are of utmost importance. In a pilot study with 20 family physicians and 1045 patients acceptance and feasibility were excellent: Every second participant improved her or his behaviour in the area of choice by at least one (of two possible) categories. For dissemination improving framework is crucial.
