Talking to Change (MI Podcast) New Episode: MI in Primary Care (Part 2)
Talking To Change: A Motivational Interviewing Podcast, hosted by Glenn Hinds and Sebastian Kaplan, is a series of conversations exploring Motivational Interviewing (MI) and its influence on supporting individuals and groups as they make positive health and lifestyle changes.
In the latest episode, Episode 52: MI in Primary Care Part 2, Glenn and Sebastian talk to Dr. Mats Hogmark, a Swedish physician specializing in family medicine, about the use of MI in a primary care setting. Dr. Hogmark describes the idea of the physician as an “assistant” and how to “sit on one’s hands,” how to become a better listener through reflections, how MI can save time, and his own model for MI in the clinical setting: the patient, doctor, and mutual roles exploring Ideas, Concerns, and Expectations. The episode ends with a role play with Mats and Glenn followed by a debrief about how to attend to the physical and emotional needs of the patient.
