Health Coaching (HC), a new patient-centered approach for transformation and maintenance of positive health behaviors, is directly associated with positive lifestyles (smoking cessation, obesity- and diabetes management). However, there is not any research on the impact of HC as a common health promotion approach at diabetes- and oral health management. What makes such a common approach so important? There is a bilateral interrelation between periodontitis and poor diabetes control. Diabetics are more likely to have periodontitis than those without. The aim of the presentation is to:
1. Explain what HC is and how it can be used as a common health promotion approach.
2. Discuss the results of Phase I (Turkey) of an international research study at the University of Copenhagen, which aims to assess the impact of HC on diabetes- and oral health management.
3. Share our expectations about Phase II (Denmark): That there will be similar results as in Turkey; significantly higher improvement of biological markers (HbA1c, periodontitis) and lifestyle (stress, physical activity) in the coaching group compared to the education group (http://videnskab.dk/kort-nyt/forskere-motiverer-diabetespatienter-til-sundere-taender).
