Motivational Interviewing: An Introduction for qualified healthcare practitioners and medics

Motivational Interviewing: An Introduction for qualified healthcare practitioners and medics


If you want to develop your skill in helping people change within a healthcare setting this course is for you. Working with services users can be difficult when people feel one of two ways about making changes. Learning motivational Interviewing can help you to facilitate change in a way that respects a person’s autonomy. It has also been found to reduce practitioner stress or burden. There is an evidence base in healthcare and behaviour change research that tells us the use of MI can help people to make behavioural changes. This course will introduce you to the skills and mind-set that will help you talk to patients who are stuck in making decisions about their health. This course is designed and facilitated in a way that gives you quality MI training and can act as a foundation on which to build future skills, should you wish to continue to develop.
