Lecture Overview

Brief

We, as nurses, wear many different hats in our role, and health coaching is now increasingly seen as a part of nursing and a potential new horizon for nurses to explore professionally. This session will open your mind to the possibility of being a nurse health coach, and how you can apply your passion for your patients to help guide them towards better health.

Educators

Karen-Ann Clarke

Dr Karen-Ann Clarke is a Registered Nurse and a specialised mental health nurse, with 30 years’ experience of working with individuals and families impacted by the experiences of mental illness. Using a feminist narrative methodology, her PhD research explored the way in which women diagnosed with depression made decisions and meanings about receiving electroconvulsive therapy. As a lecturer in nursing at USC, Dr Clarke is responsible for the coordination of mental health curricula across multiple undergraduate and post-graduate programs. Teaching in excess of 900 undergraduate students each year, she is passionate about the value that immersive mental health simulation can bring to student’s learning and clinical skills, and the way that it can safely bring to life theoretical concepts related to mental health care. Dr Clarke currently supervises a number of honours, masters, and PhD students and is part of numerous research projects involving visualisation and simulation, mental illness, suicide prevention and the inclusion of people with lived experience of mental illness into the teaching and learning space.

Enjoyed this presentation immensely but was surprised pharmacists were not include in the body of professionals suitable to undertake a Health Coach role. Pharmacists are currently making contributions as Health Coaches in sectors across Australia
