Enhancing Motivation to Change: Motivational Interviewing in Primary Care

A patient's ability and/or willingness to change their behavior has a direct impact on
how effective a treatment may be. Some patients may require more motivation than
others with the same chronic illness. 

During this one-hour Webinar, clinical experts Suzanne Bailey, PsyD and Rachel
Hovis, MD will provide an overview of using motivational interviewing within a
primary care clinic. The session will outline key concepts and techniques of
motivational interviewing, how to recognize ambivalence, roll with resistance and
elicit change talk.

Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss strategies for training and supporting provider's utilization of motivational interviewing techniques, as well as learning
from sample clinical scenarios demonstrating brief interventions using motivational interviewing in a primary care setting.

Date/Time: April 28, 2017 | 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. CST | 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. EST
