GPs forced to undertake training in 'motivational interviewing'

Comment

There seem to be two things here - one being the Medicines Management team involved! Before everyone gets excited about "motivational interviewing" have a look at the Futurelearn two week module on Medicines Adherence https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/medicines-adherence-2 "This two week course is designed for pharmacists, doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals with a role or interest in supporting patients with long-term conditions." and watch the trailer.No mention of "motivational interviewing" - and it sounds as though it will mainly be about why patients don't adhere and methods which have been tried to improve compliance... If it looks useful, don't let the CCG put you off! I admit to being a Futurelearn enthusiast
