In March 2018, Coaching for Health Lead Trainer Doug Hing was a keynote speaker at Nesta’s Future of People Powered Health event. It was an event aimed at exploring the dynamic of power in the health system, and how it can be shared between all partners as equitably as possible. You can see Doug’s presentation here as well as the subsequent panel discussion.
Alongside the event, we were asked to write a blog about ‘Doctor as Coach’ which covers many of the Coaching for Health core tenets including the importance of addressing the wider determinants of health in our conversations, and the limitations associated with just education and sharing information.
