On Monday 13th May 2019 at 8pm, Chris Johnstone, former GP and author/trainer for resilience and wellbeing, College of Wellbeing, will present a CPD webinar on ‘Motivational Interviewing to help patients help themselves’.
With exercise, dietary change, smoking or alcohol use, health-promoting advice doesn’t always fall on willing ears, making these potentially frustrating areas to address. This webinar introduces Motivational Interviewing as an evidence-based intervention shown to be helpful here.
Expected Learning Outcomes Include:
– Gain an increased understanding of how to support patients make health-related behaviour change, drawing upon principles and practices of Motivational Interviewing
– Gain practical strategies you can use in a ten-minute GP consultation to engage your patient’s enthusiasm, cultivate motivation and work with or through mixed feelings.
This webinar is equivalent to 1 CPD credit
