Motivating Individuals to Change Themselves and Their Systems
Motivational Interviewing is a specialized skill that assists psychiatric-mental health nurses to effectively assess, interact and encourage patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Nurses who are equipped with Motivational Interviewing skills are able to collaborate with patients using a person-centered counseling method that guides and strengthens a person’s motivation to change. Motivational Interviewing skills can help to improve patient outcomes and promote change in a health care system.
This podcast is the second in a series of four presentations to promote psychiatric mental health evidence-based nursing practice.
