Abstract

Recommending lifestyle changes to patients is a crucial part of a primary care physician's role. Guiding patients to make behavioral change is a challenge physicians must face on a daily basis, and based on current literature, it can be delivered more effectively in the form of motivational interviewing as opposed to traditional advice-giving. This project aims to provide physician's with a quick reference guide to Motivational Interviewing to display at their desk, as well as a template to be filled out with the patient detailing their plans for change. Together, these tools can improve the delivery of advice, and strengthen physician-patient relationships to more effectively achieve long-term health goals that require a behavioral change from the patient.
