This course series will help practitioners maximize therapeutic outcomes by improving patient motivation and engagement. Attendees will learn how to motivate patients who don't seem willing to do the work necessary to benefit from therapy or improve their quality of life. Much of the course will focus on identifying low self-efficacy and ways to increase it. Many different intervention ideas will be shared so professionals can customize their approach based on unique patient characteristics. Increased self-efficacy has been shown to improve patients' engagement, outcome attainment, and quality of life.

Learning Objectives
  • Distinguish the importance of health literacy and knowledge when trying to maximize patient motivation
  • Prepare at least four ways to maximize patient self-efficacy to facilitate a patient's participation in rehabilitation and daily activities
  • Deduce low self-efficacy in patients
  • Implement strategies to challenge maladaptive attributions in order to maximize self-efficacy and motivation
