Description

Join PacificSource and Teresa Martin, MS, RD, CDE, LD from Novo Nordisk in an extended discussion on motivational interviewing (MI) 2.0. This workshop is designed to provide you with elements that make up motivational interviewing, as well as discuss the goals, principles, and skills that may be used to encourage a patient through phases of change.

This workshop will review how motivational interviewing can help you understand the patient’s level of motivation in their current state and encourage patients to make positive changes for their future.

What will I learn?

At the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Define motivational interviewing
  • List two advantages that this technique has over traditional counseling methods
  • Explain the appropriate use of motivational interviewing
  • Understand the four key elements or essential characteristics of motivational interviewing
  • Begin using core skills for “OARS” to help engage patients and guide them toward healthy change
