This session is offered jointly by AONN+ and the Patient Navigator Training Collaborative (www.patientnavigatortraining.org). Help your clients reach their behavior change goals! Motivational interviewing (MI) is a patient-centered communication technique used to help people facing ambivalence and support those ready to make a change in health behavior. In this interactive workshop, you will learn basic MI techniques you can use with patients to help support behavior change: open-ended questions, affirmations, reflective listening and summarizing. No previous MI experience required. Workshop activities include virtual role play, guided discussion and application to practice.
This workshop will feature lecture, videos, small group work and facilitated discussion. The workshop will feature cancer-specific scenarios to tie the concepts to the participants’ daily practice. Participants will learn about the collaborative spirit of MI, describe basic strategies to enhance patient readiness to change and practice the use of basic MI skills.

Learning Objectives:
  • Describe motivational interviewing (MI).
  • Identify the four key MI skills.
  • Understand basic strategies that will enhance patient readiness to change.
  • Demonstrate use of basic MI skills
