Choices & Changes:
Motivating Healthy Behaviours
Historically, patient motivation and behaviour were viewed as the domain of the patient. The implied assumption was that the clinician could do little more than provide information to influence the patient’s actions; however, we now know this to be an inaccurate assumption about the dynamic that takes place between clinician and patient.
The program was created by the Institute for Healthcare Communication and is accredited by the College of Family Physicians of Canada. This workshop is designed to acquaint participants with the literature, theory, and techniques for promoting change in health behaviour. Additionally, this workshop provides the clinician with efficient and effective techniques and tools to help enhance patient behaviour change and adherence to treatment plans. Additional course information.
