Motivational Interviewing in Dialysis Adherence Study

Motivational interviewing (MI) has been consistently demonstrated to be associated with positive outcomes in a variety of health domains and with a wide array of patient populations. Studies have also demonstrated MI to be effective in improving adherence and outcomes for dialysis patients specifically. Despite growing literature showing the positive effects of MI for patient health outcomes and provider satisfaction, exposure to and training in the method remains limited. The purpose of this educational activity is to provide learners with an overview of the skills and principles of MI to enhance provider communication with dialysis patients.
