Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

We wanted to explore if experienced doctors, nurses and dieticians could learn "The Motivational Interview" as developed by Botelho in a simple way.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

15 experienced doctors, nurses and dieticians took part. Our method was "learning by doing"--a 5-hour long workshop supported by IT-based learning material, followed by three months of work with own patients in diabetes care using the IT material for self study.

RESULTS:

Pre-tests and post-tests showed a statistically significant improvement of the use of the structure in this form of interview.

CONCLUSION:

It is concluded that this simple form of learning opportunity is effective for experienced health care personnel.
