In this module, we will explore two different and distinct methods in helping patients change: the Transtheoretical Model, also known as the "Stages of Change" Model and Motivational Interviewing. While these are two very distinct and different models, they both are patient centric and assist the provider in identifying priorities with the patient and help the patient move towards effective goal setting and accomplishments. Once the patient is ready for change it is important to help them set specific goals towards change. During the last part of the module you will learn how to assist your patient in setting very specific goals using the WHAT approach.
