Unlocking Motivational Interviewing:
How Eliciting Behavior Change Can Enhance Health and Cut Costs
Motivational interviewing is a robust behavior-change technique that is rapidly emerging across many health care disciplines—for extremely good reason. Studies have shown the patient-centered technique to enhance patient outcomes, from improving health status, promoting physical activity, improving nutritional habits, and encouraging medication adherence to helping manage chronic conditions, including mental illness, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity and diabetes (Butterworth, JMCP).
Join the publisher of Case In Point, Case In Point Weekly, and the Case Management Resource Guide for a 90-minute online training session on how this exciting new approach can help your department improve patient care, decrease costs and ultimately limit the effects of chronic disease—whether you are in case management, disease management, nursing, primary care, pharmacy or a related field.
Attend from your desktop or conference room. Invite your whole team to attend at one low price of $329 per location. Each registration comes with access to the archived version of the program and the materials until December 31, 2011.
Continuing education credits have been applied for nurses, case managers and disability management specialists.
About the Webinar
The Case Management Society of America says: “Motivational interviewing is a proven, patient centered counseling method for addressing patient ambivalence and resistance to change. Motivational interviewing has been shown to improve treatment adherence and outcomes, promote health behavior change, improve patient satisfaction with care and increase retention rates in complex case management.”
Eliciting patient behavior change is a paramount challenge for today’s professional involved in medical management. Yet its importance could not come at a more crucial time. Chronic diseases are sweeping the nation, resulting in poor outcomes and an overutilization of healthcare resources, which in turn drives up costs and taxes the health care system as a whole.
Nearly one out of two adults is living with a chronic illness, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Such chronic conditions include high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes, all of which are growing concerns in light of the rising obesity rates. Addressing these challenges, MI is expanding among diverse settings, including case management, disease management, nursing, primary care, pharmacy and others areas of medical management.
The Case In Point Webinar series convenes an expert faculty with a wide breadth of experience in motivational interviewing. The faculty includes Dr. Jan Kavookjian, co-founder of the Auburn University Motivational Interviewing Training Institute, an innovative training model designed specifically for health care professionals. Join us on August 18 to explore the going trends in what is perhaps the most rapidly expanding behavior-change paradigm in healthcare.
