Exciting opportunity to improve your skills with “Motivational Interviewing Academy”

elearn_hiv_cancer2Patient Navigators can practice with mock patients, receive one-on-one coaching 

The Patient Navigator Training Collaborative (PNTC) is offering a unique opportunity to help patient navigators improve their motivational interviewing (MI) skills. Participants in the “Motivational Interviewing Academy” this spring will receive three sessions to practice their skills with a mock patient and follow-up coaching.

“Motivational interviewing workshops are an excellent venue for learning a new way of ‘being’ with clients, but research clearly shows that workshops alone do not change practice,” said Kathie Garrett, PNTC MI Instructor. “To successfully integrate MI spirit and skills into your daily practice, you need guidance in the form of coding and coaching.”

The MI Academy will provide patient navigators  the unique opportunity to receive real time practice with mock patients, objective MI integrity coding feedback and one-on-one coaching.

“People pay hundreds of dollars for this type of training, but we are offering three practice and coaching sessions free of charge,” Garrett said.

Motivational Interviewing is an evidence-based approach to help people make decisions, from quitting smoking to dietary changes to managing a chronic disease. MI is designed to address a patient’s ambivalence to change. This is a great skill to have in your toolbox to help improve patient outcomes.

By enrolling in this exciting opportunity, you will:

  • Participate in three encounters with mock patients so you can practice using MI
  • Have each session recorded and coded by an expert for various MI skills, to identify areas of strength and improvement
  • Receive three one-on-one coaching sessions with a professional MI coach, offering personal feedback

Target Audience: Non-licensed (lay) health professionals/patient navigators working in Colorado. Because we want to offer this experience to a variety of agencies around the state, only 3 navigators from each agency will be accepted. In addition, this opportunity is only open to lay navigators (non nurses). Please see this link for resources on MI training for nurses from the CU School of Nursing.

The mock patient encounters will be scheduled in January, March, and May 2017. You will be able to schedule each 20-minute mock session and follow up coaching call at a time slot that works with your schedule. These sessions will be all done over the phone, so travel is not required.

Prerequisites: 

  • Required: Level 1: Patient Navigator Fundamentals and Level 2: Advanced Motivational Interviewing
  • Recommended prequisite: Advanced Health Behavior Change
  • Been working as a patient navigator, health educator, community health worker or similar for at least 6 months
  • Reside in Colorado
  • Permission from your supervisor to participate
  • Be a lay (non licensed) health professional

Registration Coming In January! 

Questions? Email PNTC program manager Erin Martinez at erin.martinez@ucdenver.edu.

Meeting ID: 252 184 8364

Native American Cancer Research Corporation (NACR) developed the current online evaluation program in 2005. NACR added the Patient Navigation tab in 2008 with assistance from Linda Krebs, Lisa Harjo, Southeast Program Evaluation (Mark Dignan) and tribal partners (Walking Forward, Intertribal Council of Michigan, Muskogee (Creek) Tribe of Oklahoma, and Comanche Nation of Oklahoma). As of October 1, 2016, the research team has been awarded an NIH Phase I SBIR funding to convert the online program into an easy-to-use, useful and efficient tablet app focused on the Survivorship phase of the cancer care continuum that will allow PNs to easily document activities and interactions.  Phase II will address the full cancer continuum (prevention through end-of-life).  The prototype:

  • Makes data input easier and more accurate, ensuring systematic data collection;
  • allows for real-time summaries specific to individual patients;
  • allows program administrators to monitor PN interactions and produce a summary of activities documenting PN value;
  • Documents activities for billing; and
  • Collects patient perspectives on navigation services.

During Phase I, tailored report templates will be feasible to generate for:

  • An individual Navigator
  • A phase of the cancer continuum
  • An individual patient
  • A cancer care facility
