Change is hard. Our success, as home health professionals, in helping people manage their chronic conditions and maintain a state-of-wellness often depends upon our ability to effectively communicate and promote healthy behavior change. Motivational Interviewing (MI) offers an evidence-based model for effective conversations about change. This two-part webinar series will introduce home health professionals to Motivational Interviewing. Webinar One will offer a brief overview of the evidence base for MI and the foundational spirit of this approach. Webinar Two will introduce the core skill of reflective listening and explore an MI strategy for sharing information in a way that promotes patient engagement. Participants should attend each webinar and complete the independent activities between the two webinars.
