Description

Wellness is the quality or state of being in good health especially as an actively sought goal. It is a dynamic process of change and growth. It is the action an individual takes to achieve a state of physical, mental and social wellbeing.

Although the doctor is trained to counsel and promote wellness during the traditional consultation by offering preventive and supportive services (e.g., smoking cessation and, dietary information, cancer screening tests, diabetes self-management training, CVD screening, cholesterol, and scoliosis screening), it is up to the individual to make lifestyle changes and personal behavior choices.

In spite of the evidence that individuals make healthy choices on a daily basis, the incidence of lifestyle diseases indicates they are not successful. Furthermore, medical and governmental policy makers, as well as, environmental influences have made it more difficult for the patient then it needs to be. That said, the question remains, do doctors have the tools necessary to facilitate the patient’s journey toward health and wellness, and how can they be integrated into the doctor-patient encounter?

Objectives

Hour 1
Provide a definition of Wellness/Well-being and discuss the relationship between the principles that serve as the foundation for the “Wellness” model and the major premise and principles that define the Philosophy of Chiropractic. Understand the Wellness Consultation as an extension of the traditional chiropractic consultation with an introduction to a recognized patient self-assessment instrument that can be used to assist the patient’s journey toward wellness.
Hour 2
The doctor will be introduced to an evidence informed style of communication, Motivational Interviewing, and how it serves as the foundation for the Wellness Consultation. They will learn how to incorporate this technique to guide the patient toward health behaviors that promote wellness and wellbeing.
