This program is centered around motivational interviewing which is an evidenced based effective method for improving adherence to health behaviors.  It was developed specifically for patients who are either ambivalent or resistant to change regarding these health behaviors.  CMSA has really listened to your requests for a practical motivational interviewing course targeted at health care professionals and their needs.  We are thrilled to bring you an accredited course developed by the foremost authorities of MI in healthcare, Drs. Bruce Berger and William Villaume.

This program is based on and extends the work in Bruce and Bill’s groundbreaking book, Motivational Interviewing for Healthcare Professionals:  A Sensible Approach, the culmination of teaching motivational interviewing to health care professionals for over 25 years.  This program recognizes the unique training needs and time restraints of health care professionals.  AND….it is acronym-free!!!  This 8-hour accredited program consists of 6 interactive modules. Each module has a series of practice questions that allow learners to assess their understanding of the material presented and their ability to apply that material in realistic patient scenarios.

After completing a module and the practice questions in the module, learners will be directed to a graded assessment for that module.  Each module’s graded assessment requires achieving a score of 70 percent or better to pass that module.  The learner has two tries to achieve 70 percent.  Each module will build on the previous module.  The modules bookmark so you can exit the program at anytime, anywhere in the program and return to where you left off.  You may review materials you have already viewed as often as you like.  They are even outline buttons for each screen that allow you to hyperlink back to specific topics you would like to review!

Successful completion of the program provides 8 hours of accredited continuing education credit for dietitians, nurses, pharmacists, physicians and social workers (see below). CMSA will also provide pre-approved CCM hours.
