Monarch Motivational Interviewing Workshop for Physical Therapists & Staff ~ 18 March 2019, 9:00- !2:00, London, Ontario

This is a half-day Monarch System motivational interviewing workshop for physical therapists and related staff who work in the MSK Rapid Access Clinic Initiative, London Health Sciences Centre, London, Ontario. The workshop provides a brief overview of MI using the Monarch System’s unique approach. Our method integrates MI with other impactful behaviour change practices such as coaching methods and key elements of behaviour change theories/applications. Most importantly, we will explore and help participants to acquire applied techniques to use immediately with your patients in day-to-day practices. Most unique about the MSK Rapid Access Clinic Initiative is the fact of one time assessment/interaction with patients; the professionals work to be as impactful as possible in the exercise rehabilitation process. Thus, we will teach practitioners effectively and efficiently how to use such motivational interviewing processes and skills as compelling questions, reflective listening, and getting to change talk all in service of your patients’ health-related behaviours in short- and long-term care.
