In a perfect world, patients would heed the words of their primary care provider to quit smoking, start exercising, reduce excessive drinking, not text and drive, and other bad health habits. But change is hard, especially for patients who are not ready or ambivalent. So how do you reach them?
Motivational interviewing is a non-judgmental, non-confrontational and non-adversarial way to speak with patients about their health and personal goals. This webinar will introduce participants to the philosophy, spirit, and skills used in this evidence-based intervention, as well as discuss its usefulness in strengthening intrinsic motivation for change in healthcare settings.
