Helping providers translate knowledge into skill
Kudos to the Obesity Medicine Association for realizing medical providers are hungry to learn Motivational Interviewing, which not only translates into better patient outcomes but helps reduce provider burnout.
The workshop, which focused on seeing Motivational Skills in action and practicing the foundational skills of Motivational Interviewing, was limited to 40 people and wasn't going to run unless at least 15 people signed up. Not only did it fill up FAST, there was a huge wait list and more medical professionals expressed interested in learning these skills after hearing my introductory Motivational Interviewing talk the previous day.
I'm looking forward to assisting more medical providers by sharing my passion with their hunger!
