Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an effective communications training program to teach health care providers how to use the MI principles with patients to more effectively improve adherence with health behaviors and hence, produce better outcomes. MI is a patient-centered approach developed for use with patients who vary in their readiness to take their medications or manage their illness and related health behaviors.

The Physicians’ Institute has sponsored several live two-day intensive MI training activities, preparing hundreds of health care providers throughout the country to use MI techniques.  In addition, the Physician’s Institute has developed a ten-part CME video series that is currently available at this link on the Doctors’ Channel.
