Providing healthy living opportunities to our Veterans is one of the ways we can help serve those who have served for us!
The Preventive Care Program is designed to provide Veterans with comprehensive health education, clinical services, health behavior change coaching and support to help them to enhance self-management of their health conditions. Improving health behaviors is often not easily done. The Program is closely aligned with thePatientAlignedCareTeam (PACT) initiative and provides resources to support facility HPDP (HealthPromotion &DiseasePrevention) infrastructure. These include staff training and coaching as well as tools to assist PACT and other clinical staff in assessing and addressing Veterans’ health promotion and disease prevention needs and interests.
To encourage Veterans to choose healthy behaviors, nine key evidence-based healthy living messages have been developed. Each message includes a brief overall message with more detailed information for those Veterans who are interested. These messages are posted on the NCP (National Center on Health Promotion & Disease Prevention) website: www.prevention.va.gov.
