Motivational Interviewing (MI; Miller & Rollnick, 2013) is a collaborative conversation style for strengthening a person’s own motivation and commitment to change. It works by exploring an individual's ambivalence about health behaviours using an empathic yet challenging approach blending technical and relational components in a strategic manner (Breckon, 2015). MI is being applied extensively across diabetes services (Chen et al., 2012; Christie & Channon, 2014) and has been found to be effective in shared decision making as part of patient-centred interventions (Elywn et al., 2014). This presentation will provide a contemporary overview of MI, its application in lifestyle behaviour change settings and opportunities to experience a 'taste of MI'. The presentation will finish by summarising MI and traps to avoid when working collaboratively in diabetes services.
