Motivational Interviewing: Strategies for Tobacco Cessation and Management of Cardiovascular Health

December 11, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST

It can be difficult for patients to change their behavior, even if they know a behavior isn’t healthy. Dr. Angela Pfammatter, a clinical health psychologist, will present a motivational interviewing approach to patient care when dealing with tobacco use and managing cardiovascular health. She will describe the process of behavior change, a framework for addressing health behaviors in the clinical setting, and some practical strategies providers can use to help patients overcome resistance. Participants will be able to discuss common barriers to behavior change and use collaborative strategies related to behavioral recommendations for patients.


  • Describe common patient barriers to following behavioral recommendations.
  • Apply strategies to collaboratively address problematic behaviors.
  • Identify behavioral resistance.

This webinar is co-sponsored by Alliant Quality, atom Alliance, AQIN, HQI, Telligen and TMF – Medicare Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organizations.

Angela Fidler Pfammatter, PhD, assistant professor, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Department of Preventive Medicine
