Motivational Interviewing is an evidence-based conversational style that enhances a person’s readiness for positive changes. It has been increasingly used in healthcare settings to help strengthen patients’ sense of importance and confidence in making healthy choices, which can include physical activity, nutrition, medication adherence, appointment attendance, smoking cessation, and use of preventive services. This workshop will introduce participants to adaptations of MI that fit well within brief consultations (10-15 minutes), addressing key practice tips that span the relational and technical sides of this style. Original webcast date: April 20, 2018.
