Motivational Interviewing

*Teach-Back*L.E.A.R.N.S. Model*Motivational Interviewing

Here’s how teach-back works: After you provide teaching, ask the patient to explain the material you’ve just covered. Based on the response, you can determine how much and how well the patient comprehends and recalls what you’ve taught. If the patient’s has trouble explaining or recalling the material, you’ll need to repeat, clarify, or modify it—and then reassess the patient’s understanding and recall. You might need to repeat this cycle several times.

L.E.A.R.N.S. (Listen, Establish, Adopt, Reinforce, Name and Strengthen) is the acronym for the interactions that take place where the client and nurse circles intersect. The L.E.A.R.N.S. Model also signifies the nursing process. By listening to the client’s needs, the nurse is able to understand the client’s perspective, see the client as a whole and begin to build a partnership relationship that is therapeutic and respectful of autonomy, voice and self-determination. Facilitation of client learning is an intentional intervention which recognizes that learning requires information, opportunity to practice new skills, ability to translate new knowledge and skills into the client’s context, assessment of the learning, and the opportunity to enhance comprehension or mastery of the skill which promotes self-efficacy and self-management.

Motivational Interviewing is a clinical approach that helps people with mental health and substance use disorders and other chronic conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, and asthma make positive behavioral changes to support better health. The approach upholds four principles— expressing empathy and avoiding arguing, developing discrepancy, rolling with resistance, and supporting self-efficacy (client’s belief s/he can successfully make a change).
