Welcome to MI in Healthcare Online

Medical and allied health practitioners are often frustrated by low rates of engagement, non-adherence to treatment or self-management recommendations and attrition from treatment or self-management programs.  In an attempt to address these problems,  Motivational Interviewing is currently being successfully utilized in a number of healthcare settings including diabetes management, exercise adherence, pain management, cardiac rehabilitation and weight loss. Participants will become familiar with the underpinning philosophy and the core clinical skills and strategies utilised in Motivational Interviewing in health care settings in order to maximize the therapeutic opportunity available in their interactions with their patients.
