Abstract:

Health coaching is a solution-focused, patient-centered approach that optimizes well-being. This is a mixed-methods single-arm, repeated-measures, feasibility and acceptability pilot trial that examines the use of health coaching among returning veterans with suicide risk. Up to 30 participants with suicide risk pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, sleep disturbances, andor substance use disorder will engage in 8 weekly sessions of health coaching and complete health outcome measures at baseline and weeks 4, 8 and 16. Findings will be used to modify the intervention and develop a larger randomized controlled trial of health coaching in this population. Progress to date We have enrolled our sample of 28 participants and are currently delivering the intervention and obtaining quantitative health outcome data.
