For Health Professionals
Edmonton Method for Health Change — 2 Day Intensive
- Date: January 27-28, 2020
- Location: Delta Hotel by Marriott Edmonton Centre Suites — Edmonton, Alberta
This 2-day course builds the skills and confidence required for nursing and allied health professionals to guide conversations around health change. Now more than ever, health professionals need to go beyond the basics. We are called to learn advanced communication skills to modify health behaviours during pivotal clinical interactions. Participation in this 2-day course gives you the power and clinical potential to shape patient care in a much more evidence-based way, incorporating traditional techniques from Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Prochaska & DiClemente’s Transtheoretical Stages of Change Model along with newer techniques gaining traction among clinicians. After learning key theories and concepts, all participants will have the opportunity practice skills they learned in a small group format.
