Cardiac Health - Resource

It can be difficult for patients to change their behavior, even if they know a behavior isn’t healthy. In this webinar presented in December 2018 by Telligen and Health Quality Innovators, clinical health psychologist Dr. Angela Pfammatter presents a motivational interviewing approach to patient care when dealing with tobacco use and managing cardiovascular health. She describes the process of behavior change, presents a framework for addressing health behaviors in the clinical setting and delivers practical strategies that healthcare providers can use to help patients overcome resistance.
