ABSTRACT

Motivational interviewing was originally developed as an approach to help people who misuse alcohol reduce their alcohol consumption.2 Motivational interviewing has been defined as a “directive, client-centered counselling style for eliciting behavior change by helping clients explore and resolve ambivalence.” 3 A 2005 systematic review and meta-analysis found that motivational interviewing outperforms usual care in the treatment of a range of behavior problems and diseases, including reducing body mass index, total cholesterol, systolic blood pressure, and alcohol consumption.4 Motivational interviewing can help treat any medical diagnosis with a behavior component.5 Adherence to a treatment plan, such as taking medications, exercising, eating a healthy diet, getting vaccinated, and wearing a mask during the COVID-19 pandemic, depends on the patient's behavior. Follow-up can be accomplished through in-person encounters, telephone calls, and video visits and can be performed by any team member the patient knows and trusts.6 TAKE-HOME MESSAGES FOR RIGHT CARE Identify and mobilize the patient's intrinsic values and goals to stimulate behavior change, rather than trying to impose the clinician's views onto the patient.
