What is Health Psychology Consulting?
Health psychologists promote medical health via interventions that address lifestyle, emotions, thoughts and environment.
Health psychologists also design and implement models of healthcare delivery within medical healthcare systems (and beyond) with the aim of increasing patient engagement, preventing medical illness, and improving medical health for those with medical illness. Insomnia, cardiovascular disease, cancer, infertility, and diabetes are among the medical illnesses that health psychology interventions target.
The design and implementation of models of healthcare delivery within medical healthcare systems to increase patient engagement, improve patient care, and decrease costs.
For example, design health psychology interventions to help prevent, identify and manage cardiovascular disease, diabetes, infertility, postpartum depression, and other medical conditions.
