Abstract
Background: To determine whether the Health Partner Program is effective in training long-term cancer
survivors to be health coaches. Materials and Methods: We randomly assigned cancer survivors who were selected
through a rigorous screening process to either the Health Partner Program or the waiting-list control group. The
program consisted of 8 weeks of training in health management, leadership, and coaching. At baseline, 8, and 16
weeks, we measured primary outcomes using the Seven Habit Profile (SHP), the Korean Leadership Coaching
Competency Inventory (KCCI), Ed Diner’s Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS), and the Posttraumatic Growth
inventory (PTGI) and secondary outcomes using the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), the Impact
of Event Scale-Revised (IES-R), and the Medical Outcomes Study (MOS) short form 36-item questionnaire (SF-
36). Results: We recruited 70 subjects and randomly assigned 34 to the intervention group. The Sharpen the Saw
habit of the SHP increased significantly more in intervention group than in the control group (p = 0.049), as did
most PTGI factors. The intervention group also showed a significantly greater enhancement of vitality (p = 0.015)
and mental health (p = 0.049) SF-36 scores but no improvement in KCCI, SWLS, HADS, or IES-R scores. The
intervention group also showed a greater clinically meaningful improvement in the “Think Win-Win” of SHP
(p = 0.043) and in the personal strength score (p = 0.025) and total score (p = 0.015) of the PTGI. Conclusions:
Long-term cancer survivors can benefit from the Health Partner Program to become health coaches.
