Pro-Change partners with Stanford

Posted 5/5/14

SOUTH KINGSTOWN – Pro-Change, a certified Women’s Business Enterprise, has had its Basic Transtheoretical Model e-Learning training included in the Stanford Health 4 America Fellows Program.

Stanford Health 4 America Fellows Program, designed and delivered by the Stanford Prevention Research Center, School of Medicine, in Palo Alto, Calif., focuses on the prevention of chronic diseases. The program includes courses taught by Stanford faculty.

Pro-Change Behavior Systems Inc. is a research and development company providing wellness partners with computer- and coaching-based programs for changing health risk behaviors. Based on the Transtheoretical Model of Behavior Change developed by founder James O. Prochaska, Pro-Change programs are for entire populations but are tailored to each individual. Pro-Change programs have produced strong impacts on multiple behaviors to enhance health and reduce health care costs.

Pro-Change’s e-Learning Program guides the fellows to understand and describe the characteristics of people in different stages of change as well as list and define techniques of motivational interviewing, a way of working with clients that supports behavior change.

In 2009, Pro-Change LifeStyle Management Programs for Stress Management, Depression Prevention, Weight Management, Exercising Regularly, Smoking Cessation, and Medication Adherence won the URAC Gold Award for Best Practices in Health Management. In 2012, the LifeStyle programs were featured on AHRQ’s Innovation Exchange website. In 2014, Pro-Change’s Health Risk Intervention was awarded Health Information Products (HIP) Certification for Health Appraisals by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
