The Camrose Primary Care Network (PCN) Prevention and Chronic Disease Management Program offers In-Clinic Health Coach support for clients seeking help to manage health issues such as Diabetes ( Pre Diabetes ), Hypertension, Cholesterol, Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, COPD, Heart Failure and Weight Management, and to help prevent complications that may arise from these chronic conditions.
  • The goal of our program is to work alongside clients to provide support and empower them to make healthier choices. We value our clients as an important member of the team on their health care journey!
  • There is no charge for the program but a referral from your family doctor is required.

How it works...

  • In Clinic Health Coaches (ICHCs) are nurses that work within the physician clinics to help physicians support their patients right in the clinic on the day of their appointment.  Alternatively, patients can book appointments with the ICHC to assist with managing their health issues.
  • Your initial visit can take up to 1 hour and follow up visits can take up to 1/2 hour.
  • During your visits, you will work together with the Health Coach to make a health plan that is just right for you. The ICHCs continue to work with your family doctor to provide you with the best care.

  • Camrose Primary Care Network ( PCN ) has a full compliment of Health Coaches from a variety of disciplines which include: Registered & Licensed Practical Nurses, Registered Dietitian, and Behavioural Health Consultants to support you on your healthcare journey. Camrose PCN offers individual support as well as group classes, depending on the area of need.
  • Other healthcare and community providers may be consulted and referred to when needed.
  • Your family doctor for regular follow up visits.
