Summary:

Chronic conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, lung disease, obesity, and arthritis create a significant burden on our healthcare system. Healthcare professionals witness the impact on patients’ quality of life and also see how hard it is for people to make changes in their health. Instructing patients what to do, how to eat, why they should exercise, and how to manage stress does not tend to lead to positive behavior changes.
 
Motivational interviewing is a style of patient counseling that helps resolve a person’s ambivalence about changing his or her habits. The counselor helps the patient explore personal motivators and helps the client identify his or her own goals. The approach is based on what matters to the patient. When each member of an interprofessional team practices from this point of view, the results can be positive for the patient, and for the practitioners.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to provide healthcare practitioners with information about the theory, guiding principles, and clinical application of motivational interviewing as part of an interprofessional team approach to care for patients with chronic illnesses. After taking this course, you should be able to:
  • Explain the benefits of using motivational interviewing to encourage lifestyle changes.
  • Identify the four guiding principles (RULE) of motivational interviewing for healthcare providers.
  • Discuss motivational interviewing techniques practitioners can use to help people create behavior change.
  • Identify the five stages of change within the Transtheoretical model of behavior change.
  • Identify the five components of SMART goals.
