Engagement Training

Optimizing Self-Management Through Improved Patient Engagement

Overview

During this training course, you will learn motivational interviewing skills to form and leverage a multi-disciplinary practice care team to:

  • effectively empower patients and their families,
  • engage patients in self-management and health behavior change,
  • positively affect patient self-care practices and decision-making,
  • provide comprehensive assessment and care planning using shared decision making,
  • implement evidence based interventions and advocate for the right care, at the right time and in the right place.

The communication skills taught in this training encompass motivational interviewing, cultural and ethical considerations, health literacy, and most importantly — the patient’s views and desires.

To achieve the skills above, the training session will:

  • introduce the necessary concepts,
  • provide the opportunity to learn from one another,
  • practice the skills via role playing,
  • provide the opportunity to participate in a “simulation interview” with a trained, standardized patient, and
  • provide an interview assessment from the patient’s perspective.

*** These last two bullets are unique to Mi-CCSI’s training courses and are not offered by similar organizations.

This training incorporates aspects of the Chronic Care Model, the Patient Centered Medical Home and the Team-based Care approach. As well, Mi-CCSI courses are fully vetted with care management leaders and training attendees. Curricula development, facilitated by MICMT, was co-developed with trainers across Michigan, to include IHP, Lynn Klima, PTI, and NPO. Mi-CCSI ensures trainers are well versed in the concepts and have extensive experience to offer insight and application of the skills, tools, and information covered.
