Bridging Theory and Practice: Applying Health Behavior Change Theories to Patient Navigation
Are you a Patient Navigator or Case Coordinator who works with clients who have chronic diseases? If so, Bridging Theory & Practice: Applying Health Behavior Change Theories to Patient Navigation, is a course you cannot miss!
This two-day course takes the theory of behavior change learned in the classroom, and shows you how to apply it the field. This course will also explore disease prevention, such as vaccines, access to healthy foods & medical care, public health, and increasing access to patient health education.
The course provides exercises in understanding the factors that influence behavior; an overview of the different levels of interventions; the introduction of a framework to link theory, behavioral determinants and interventions; and small group work to strengthen skills learned in the course.
