Edmonton Method for Health Behaviour Change (2 Day Intensive)
January 27, 2020 - January 28, 2020| $499
Become the change patients need by learning evidence-based strategies to shift attention, raise concern and build motivation for change.
This 2-day course builds the skills and confidence required for nursing and allied health professionals to guide conversations around health behaviour change. Now more than ever, clinicians need to go beyond the basics. We are called to learn advanced communication skills to modify health behaviours during pivotal clinical interactions. Participation in this 2-day course gives you the power and clinical potential to shape patient care in a much more evidence-based way, incorporating traditional techniques from Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Prochaska & DiClemente’s Transtheoretical Stages of Change Model along with newer techniques gaining traction among clinicians. After learning key theories and concepts, all participants will have the opportunity to practice skills they learned in a small group format.
