Applied MI & Coaching Tools for MUN School of Pharmacy Entry-to-Practice 3rd year doctor of pharmacy students ~ 15 September 2020 [Zoom format]

This is a half-day Monarch MI & Coaching tools introductory workshop for Memorial University of Newfoundland’s 3rd year entry-to-practice PharmD program student group. The workshop provides a meaningful 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.We will explore and help participants to acquire applied techniques to use with your practicum and future patients/clients in day-to-day practices. You will learn how to build motivation and transition that enhanced motivation into a strengthened and real commitment to client/patient changed behaviours. We will teach you different ways to use elements such as presence, competence views, compelling questions, reflective listening, change talk, and empathy in your interpersonal interactions. Monarch’s work with MUN PharmD program is an ongoing partnership now in its 3rd consecutive year. The entry-to-practice doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) program is designed to prepare students who are beginning their pharmacy education for careers primarily in community and hospital settings, as well as pharmaceutical industries, pharmacy organizations, and educational environments.Given the uncertainty of COVID times, the ongoing need for social-physical distancing, and Memorial University’s decision to do virtual classes in the Fall of 2020, the workshop will be conducted virtually via the Zoom platform from 1:00-4:00 PM NL time zone. The workshop is restricted to 3rd year students enrolled in the MUN Pharm D program. For more information about that program, please contact Dr Lisa D.
