Each of us who works in healthcare shares a common goal--to encourage healthy behavior in our patients. We want our patients to heal and thrive, but in almost every scenario, behavior change on the patient's end is necessary. We want our patients to adhere to their exercise programs, eat better, sleep better, move more, fear less, and live better. However, just because what we want for them is "good," actual sustained changes in behavior are a much more challenging goal, even when our patients agree with us. Understanding the science behind behavior change is important for any clinician. Many of us practice as if filling a knowledge gap is all that is required to make change. This webinar will discuss what drives human behavior and how understanding these drivers can allow us to help our patients make meaningful change. It is applicable to any healthcare setting.
