Health Behavior Change

Health behavior change is one of the most significant factors of lasting well-being. Altering health behaviors can help many patients to reduce the risk of disease and better manage chronic pain or illness. Duke Integrative Medicine’s Health Behavior Change course teaches providers health behavior change skills for helping patients reduce health risks and effectively manage their chronic conditions.

This course is designed for healthcare organizations that are looking to help patients improve their health and their lives. The course teaches providers how to integrate personal health planning and health behavior change skills into their existing practice, to better support patients as they set sustainable, long-term health goals.

Health Behavior Change is completed online through web-based trainings. Upon completing the course, consider enrolling in the Health Behavior Change Practicum to translate your knowledge into practice. The practicum consists of mentored practice sessions that help participants refine their skills to ensure success for both themselves and their patients. Both the Health Behavior Change course and Practicum qualify for continuing education credits for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and allied health professionals.
