Implementing motivational interviewing in a pediatric hospital.

Abstract

Motivational Interviewing is a collaborative style of communication designed to strengthen a person's own motivation and commitment to change. We report on our ongoing efforts to implement motivational interviewing to address health behavior change among several patient populations in our pediatric hospital, including sexual risk reduction among adolescents, increased self-care for patients with spina bifida, increased adherence for adolescents with Type 1 diabetes, and facilitation with transition from pediatric to adult care among gastroenterology patients.
