About this Event

This interactive day is ideal for General Practice Nurses and is brought to you in collaboration with NHS England GPN 10 Point Plan (GPN10PP).

We all went into the health care profession to help people; we feel that we can make things ‘right’ for them and we spend much of our time trying to do so. Behaviour change and lifestyle are the bedrock of chronic disease management; NHS Health Checks and most interactions in General Practice. Do you frequently advise what your patient should, could, must or needs to do? If so, then this is the course for you.

Motivational interviewing is a style of communication that uses a guiding/reflective style to engage with patients, clarify their strengths and aspirations, and utilise their own motivations for change, and then promote independence of decision making. If this is sounding a little flowery, in a nutshell, it saves your breath, your time and you are more effective when it comes to people making decisions about their behaviour.

We all think we are brilliant communicators but come and find out how to keep your hands off other peoples monkeys! This course has run for several years and without exception evaluates as a stunning learning experience, where delegates leave knowing why they want to use MI, what MI is all about and the ability to start practicing some aspects of it as soon as they go home.
