Healthcare expenditures in the US -
$2.4 trillion
Chronic conditions account for 75%
You need to take this prescription, 2 pills after each meal and one pill at bedtime. No red meat, no fattening, rich deserts. You need to lose at least 5 lbs. You have a serious heart condition
You know when its your time to go, what can you do? I don’t like the way these pills make me feel. I think I’ll just take one instead of two.

Core Skills of MI
open-ended questions
Open ended questions
Turning a closed question into an open one:
“Tell me how things have been going with your health (diabetes, COPD, heart condition, pain, etc.)”

“What are some issues you’re having regarding your health goals …”
“How are you doing with your diabetes?”
“Tell me about your feelings now that you have diabetes”

Acknowledge effort, values, skills, strengths

“Your family is really
to you”
Four Processes
a metaphoric bouquet of flowers
Statements used to capture the essence of what a patient is saying and evoke change talk
"You feel..."
"And you..."
“I know I should give up smoking, it costs so much and I now its really bad for my health. I don’t really think I could give it up.”
“On the one hand its hard to imagine your life without cigarettes and on the other hand you have good reasons for quitting.”
MI in a nutshell
talk less than the patient
more reflections
elicit change talk
But aren't I the expert?
