SURVEY: In-Person Social Support Critical to Sustaining Changes in Preventive Health Behaviors

NEJM Catalyst recently released interesting survey results; patients rank "improved access to preventive care" as the most effective way to initiate preventive health behavior changes (65%) but rank "in-person social support" as the most effective means of sustaining preventive health behavior changes (64%).

At Clifford Beers, we dedicate significant clinical and related services to prevention. Among others, we have a Specialized Services division for at-risk youth designed to stabilize them and teach them how to make better choices; we have a birth-to-five program, Child First, that helps parents at risk for poor child attachment better establish the parent-child bond; and we have care coordination support that looks to promote sustained wellness.

We welcome discussions focused on prevention -- initiating it and sustaining it -- and actively work to promote prevention care as a cornerstone of health and wellness.
