HCPA Individual Assessment, Report & MINT Health Coaching Specialist Feedback & Coaching Session.

Clinical studies find that receiving an objective evaluation of a health coach's skill in best practice health coaching (via a standardized, validated tool) combined with expert feedback, is key for building motivational interviewing health coaching proficiency. Like any complex skill, such as playing golf, or learning a musical instrument or new language, feedback and coaching are essential to progress and proficiency.

The HCPA is a coding system that was developed by a HealthSciences Institute research team of specialists in MI and evidence-based health coaching. The HCPA was specifically designed to assess health coaching proficiency and provide objective ratings of coach skill in best practice health coaching. The HCPA provides detailed feedback in a written report, as well as a summary of strengths and opportunities for improvement. It also measures "change talk" which recent clinical studies show to be one of the strongest predictors of patient-level outcomes.The HCPA is based on the MITI, but has been independently validated by on of the top external health care services researcher (Dr. Ariel Linden).

If you're new to "coding," or evaluating health coaching samples requires expert proficiency in MI, as well as special training and years of experience using a validated assessment system and tool such as the Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity (MITI) or the Health Coaching Performance Assessment (HCPA). Each member of the HealthSciences Institute Coding Team meets the following qualifications:

• MINT-trained professional, specializing in MI-based health coaching

• Motivational Training Integrity (MITI) Coding System trained and experienced

• Health Coaching Performance Assessment (HCPA) certified

Step 4.) Within two weeks, you receive a confidential five-page HCPA report;
