Course Summary

Motivational interviewing involves methods of evoking behavioral change in patients with a health condition using evidence-based education and professional guidance. The health clinician aims at improving patient health outcomes using patient engagement strategies to progress toward specific health goals. Motivational interviewing may not meet the preference of all individuals. Some may feel criticized, judged for their decisions, and may have low desire to change. Motivational interviewing involves clinician-patient collaboration, and an understanding of the patient’s desire and level of motivation to change. This is the second in a four-part series on Motivational Interviewing.
