Patient-centered care is the cornerstone of patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs) and affordable care organizations (ACOs) as presented in the Affordable Care Act (ACA). It also is essential in meeting the Triple Aim of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI): better care for individuals, better health for populations, and lower per capita costs. Unfortunately, many health care providers have not been adequately trained in motivational interviewing or health coaching as part of patient-centered care. This course will provide detailed background information on motivational interviewing and health coaching as well as examples of interview questions and techniques to use with your patients to help move toward patient-centered care.
