Welcome to the online toolkit to help implement the Telephone Lifestyle Coaching
for Healthy Living (TLC) program!
TLC is a prevention program for Veterans. The program is offered by professional health coaches managed by [contractor].
TLC has the following features:
  • Professional coaches provide telephone-based self-management support.
  • Coaches are available 6am to 12am Monday through Saturday.
  • Up to 10 calls are scheduled at the Veteran’s convenience over approximately 6 months, with unlimited incoming calls to a coach.
  • The program is patient-centered; Veterans select the areas in which to set and achieve goals.
  • These services are provided and paid for under a contract with [contractor] that will be put in place in your facility with help from NCP.
The program offers coaching in six areas of lifestyle behavior change:
