|Person-To-Person Can Make The Difference
Personal involvement with participants seemed to
drive up satisfaction with wellness initiatives, said Patty Calvier,
Intel senior project manager, when discussing Intel's global health
wellness program during an audio Webinar, sponsored by Wellness
Management Information Center.
Clavier explained that between the two different
types of coaching offered - on-site or telephonic - the highest rates
of satisfaction are associated with personal face-to-face coaching.
In both the U.S. and across the globe, two
different health risk assessments are used, said Clavier, but people
tend to "prefer the idea of working with someone in a health check
setting or health coaching setting ... so when it's a person, the
satisfaction goes up; when it's a person [compared] to [a] computer,
there is not as much satisfaction."

|Peer Support Offers Promise for Reducing Depression Symptoms
Peer support offers promise as an effective,
low-cost tool for fighting depression, a new study by the VA Ann Arbor
Healthcare System and University of Michigan Health System finds.
Programs in which patients and volunteers share
information were found to reduce symptoms of depression better than
traditional care alone and were about as effective as cognitive
behavioral therapy, researchers found after analyzing 10 randomized
trials of peer support interventions for depression dating from 1987 to
The analysis was the first of its kind to look at
peer support specifically for depression, says lead author Paul
Pfeiffer, M.D., M.S., an assistant professor of psychiatry at the
University of Michigan Medical School and researcher at the VA Ann
Arbor Healthcare System.
