Checklist for Whole Health Engagement • Does your program send welcoming messages that would encourage you personally to attend? • Does your program focus on what's strong (health/wellness) rather than what's wrong (illness/disability) to inspire hope and confidence? • Does your program promote partnerships and collaborative relationships that focus on shared decision making and participant choices and preferences?
Checklist for Whole Health Engagement • Does your program promote that all staff - doctors, administration, front line - support each person’s whole health goal and weekly action plan so there is buy-in and consistent support at all program levels? • Does your program engage in person-centered planning to determine personal strengths, supports and patterns to create positive, strength-based whole health goals? • Does your program teach skills to create specific whole health goals and weekly action plans positively stated as a new health behavior that is achievable to build a sense of confidence and control?
Checklist for Whole Health Engagement • Does your program promote peer support and group bonding with the outcome that the participation and activities are driven by the participants? • Are your activities respectful of social determinates like culture and poverty promoting activities that participants are culturally comfortable participating in and have the resources for? • Does your program teach skills to facilitate highly engaging health promoting theme centered groups?
Checklist for Whole Health Engagement • Are your activities respectful of social determinants such as culture and poverty? Do they promote activities that participants are culturally comfortable participating in and have the resources for? • Does your program teach skills to facilitate groups that are highly engaging, health promoting, and theme centered? • Does your program teach whole health skills to participants who prefer one-on-one meetings over groups? • Does your program offer a combination of group and individual follow up?
Groups have advantages and challenges • Groups present “emotionally high risk” situations • Safety and trust is paramount and not easy to establish • Wide diversity of experiences, background, knowledge, skills, needs, expectations and readiness among members to make the most out of the group learning opportunity • How to ensure that each member of the group benefits (i.e., how do you personalize the experience for each person) -- very, very challenging • How to ensure that each member has the opportunity to apply learning in the context of his/her circumstances • Diversity of learning readiness (how does this affect the pace of the group) • Challenges associated with closed vs. open groups • Membership often changes: People start and stop at various points • How to ensure the group is interesting and meaningful to participants
So, how can we address these many challenges? • Engaging consumers to identify, plan, and decide on topics of interest • Building in opportunities for participants to facilitate a group (note: having a straightforward and easy group facilitation format to follow helps) • Having clear and easily visible ground rules that have been generated and agreed upon by members can go a long way • Building in hands-on activities builds interest and is one bridge from knowledge acquisition to application • Combine group work with individual follow up • Having a clear, transparent and easy to follow group learning format is a real plus! • Avoid lecturing and sermonizing
