PRECONFERENCE WORKSHOP: Building Skills in MI for Interprofessional Team-Based Practice: An Effective and Versatile Approach
Instructors: Amy Parins, MPAS, PA-C; Beth Martin, PhD, MS,RPh, FAPhA; Michelle Drapkings, PhD; Yasyn Lee, MD
Learner level: Beginner
Continuing Education hours: 6
Motivational Interviewing is a communication approach that can be effectively applied in many healthcare professional settings. Healthcare professionals, in any area of service, are likely to encounter people who might be reluctant to embrace change in their behaviors, thoughts and attitudes. Everyone on a health/social care team can benefit from learning and incorporating this skill into their interprofessional practice.
This interactive workshop will create a rich learning environment for the reinforcement of the common processes of MI. An interprofessional/interdisciplinary team of facilitators will bolster participants’ confidence in the use of MI through introspection, small and large group practice, video, didactic discussion and modeling. Participants will work across professions to bring their respective training, expertise and anticipated use of MI to collaboratively apply the skills and style.
Workshop learning objectives:
- Discuss the importance of having MI skills and knowledge across a range of professions
- Define your own role in helping people resolve ambivalence
- Describe MI in the context of your profession and the interprofessional team
- Apply MI skills in interprofessional case scenarios
UW CIPE Motivational Interviewing Badge
Students who participate in this interprofessional preconference workshop will receive a formal UW–Madison IPE digital badge through UW CIPE called the Interprofessional Motivational Interviewing Badge (IPE MI Badge). The UW CIPE Badger Program is the branch of the UW–Madison Badger program that provides focused IPE academic training called IPE Badges. Successful completion of the IPE MI Badge, as a formal microcredential, signifies the achievement of competence in interprofessional MI.
The IPE MI Badge can be showcased via personal profile, social media (LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.) and/or shared with potential employers as a way to help you articulate the skills you have gained from completing the badge criteria. This badge also counts toward the UW IPE Path of Distinction.
