Abstract

Abstract: There is a need for an alternative approach for health promotion prisons since previous work has indicated that health education, while improving health knowledge, does not result in behaviour change. Evidence has suggested that a health coaching assists in this regard. However, the question remained whether this approach would be appropriate and possible in prisons? This paper presents the public health strategies used to work in partnership with prison management to address challenges and accept opportunities as a health coaching intervention protocol was developed for oral health and wellbeing in the prison setting. Key words: prison, oral health improvement, health coaching
