Motivational Interviewing: How and Why It Works for People With Diabetes


Good afternoon, and welcome to
the National Diabetes Education Program’s webinar,
Motivational Interviewing: How and Why It Works for
People With Diabetes. We are delighted to
have so many people registered for today’s session. I’ve been told that over 1,600
people registered, and that we’re breaking an NDEP record. Our presenters today will
show how a well-designed, motivational interviewing
intervention can foster patient empowerment by making the
patients themselves aware of the potential for change in behavior, resulting in improved diabetes treatment and care. We believe this webinar will
allow all of us to learn more about how several motivational
interviewing diabetes education programs were performed in rural and other settings, as well as the methods that were used
for client counseling. By the end of the webinar, it is
our hope that you will see how motivational interviewing can be
integrated into daily clinical work with diabetic patients to
bring about clinically relevant effects that benefit
our patients. Our first speaker is
Dr. Jan Kavookjian. Jan is an associate professor of
health outcomes research and policy at Auburn University’s Harrison School of Pharmacy.
