The purpose of this presentation is to critically evaluate outcomes of a health coaching curriculum for medical assistants. This curriculum is part of a larger study investigating the effectiveness and implementation of a novel diabetes intervention in primary care. We will describe and share our curriculum, report outcomes from the training and intervention, and discuss next steps in research and dissemination. We recommend nurse managers, implementation researchers, and educators consider attending.
- Describe the health coaching curriculum and it's fit with the overall intervention
