Preventing avoidable hospital readmissions often involves getting the patient to make some changes to better manage his or her condition. This can be a major source of frustration and a significant barrier, especially for patients with mental health conditions. Join us for a free educational opportunity to learn about Motivational Interviewing, a collaborative, person-centered guiding method designed to bring about and strengthen motivation for change. This evidence based communication style can increase your capacity to effectively engage patients in their own care. You will develop skills to access patient’s motivation and strengthen their commitment to self-management activities. This workshop will improve your patient communication no matter your current skill level.
This workshop has been tailored to support providers in preventing avoidable hospital readmissions, both medical and psychiatric. Workshop content will includes tools, scenarios, and content specific to empowering patients at risk of hospital readmission who are being discharged from care or transitioning from one care setting to another. By attending this workshop, you will also have the opportunity to engage with your peers as well as care providers at other stages along the care continuum who are similarly focused on preventing readmissions.
Please note: There will be a one hour lunch break, however lunch will not be provided. There is a cafeteria on site and other restaurants in the area.
