Have you found yourself frustrated by your patient's lack of adherance, and wonder how you are going to get through to them? Do you feel like a broken record when you talk to your patients about their self-distructive habits?

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is more than just a buzzword. It is an evidenced-based approach that will take the lecturing and negotiating out of the conversation with your patients, and provide you with effective strategies that will increase the behavior change your clients need. It's a proven technique that can improve patient outcomes and quality in an organization, increase success and reduce re-admission.

Stephen Rollnick, PhD, is the world's foremost expert and co-founder of motivational interviewing (MI), a method for helping people to change their behavior.  He has worked for 25+ years on MI for modifiable risk factors in healthcare, as a practitioner, trainer and author of books on this subject..

Dr. Rollnick has designed this recording specifically for the challenges that healthcare providors face. Learn an easier approach that will take the frustration out of your conversations regarding diabetes control, medication adherence, clinic attendance, diet adherence, physical activity, and associated patient behaviors.

Self-management is a necessity in diabetes (Types I & II) and other chronic diseases.  You can give information, urge patient to change, even beg them to, but only they can make the changes. The Motivational Interviewing techniques presented in this recording will help both you and your patients move past just talking about change, into a state of real behavior change and adherance.



This online program is worth 1.5 hours CPD.
