This ten-video program is designed to introduce the concept of motivational interviewing (MI) and its value in helping patients who smoke consider a quit attempt, as well as being applicable to other areas of health behavior change. Key components and strategies of MI will be explained, and video demonstrations of successful MI will be shown. Participants will be encouraged to consider how to integrate MI into their practice setting. Videos can be viewed and credit can be provided separately, although participation in the entire program is recommended.
