Journal Club 7: Tele-Motivational Interviewing for Cancer Survivors: Feasibility, Preliminary Efficacy, and Lessons Learned

Recorded 10/21/2019

About the Webinar

Motivational interviewing targets individual ambivalence surrounding behavior change. It has demonstrated efficacy for changing multiple challenging behaviors, including those related to dietary and physical activity patterns. It also has utility in remote platforms to allow autonomy in selection of methods of communication. This includes cancer survivors, as well as other high risk populations, in encouraging adherence to evidence-based recommendations.
