What does prevention mean to you? How has My health for life supported your patients in achieving their health goals?
Prevention to me means avoiding disease and living your life to the fullest. The My health for life program has been a great support for my patients enabling them to access a great program for free which provides scientifically proven methods for prevention of chronic disease. It has also allowed them to build a support network with others working on similar goals. They can learn about the steps in behaviour change, whilst getting the assistance to move through the process towards improved and sustainable health outcomes.
Tell us about your participants’ experience in the My health for life program … what do they enjoy most about the program?
Our participants really enjoy the group interaction and learning from others in the sessions.
Many enjoy the information provided in the sessions and learning about behaviour change whilst using it to achieve simple but achievable goals. Some participants mention they really like the idea of checking in with the group to assist with accountability rather than trying to go it alone.
Has COVID-19 changed the way in which you deliver the program?
Covid-19 has definitely changed the way we run our program. We have run a fair few programs online which have worked really well for our participants whilst staying home more often. This has been a format that many participants have continued to find a great option after isolation, as it provides them with greater flexibility to attend the sessions from their location of choice.
We have just started to run our sessions back in the face to face format in our clinic with reduced capacity due to social distancing. This has however been well received as it allows each participant more of a chance to have their say in session compared to the larger groups.
Why would you recommend patients/clients be referred into the My health for life program?
It is a fantastic program which provides long term support and assists participants to make sustainable changes to their health whilst reducing their chronic disease risk. Many of our participants see reductions in their weight, waist measurements, cholesterol, blood pressure and or blood glucose levels. They get to learn evidence based facts and practice putting these into action with the support we know works. Learning and working on goals with a group is a wonderful and motivating way to achieve better health.
