Change is hard. As home health professionals, our success in helping people manage their chronic conditions and maintain a state of wellness often depends upon our ability to effectively communicate and promote healthy behavior change. Motivational Interviewing (MI) offers an evidence-based model for effective conversations about change. This two-part webinar series will introduce home health professionals to MI. Part 1 held on July 19, 2018, will offer a brief overview of the evidence base for MI and the foundational spirit of this approach. Part 2 held on August 2, 2018, will introduce the core skill of reflective listening and explore an MI strategy for sharing information to promote patient engagement. Supplied independent activities outside the webinars will enhance learning. It is recommended participants attend each webinar and complete the independent activities between the two webinars.
