Moving Towards Change:  Supporting Your Patient to Self Manage

 

 

This workshop was developed for health care providers in the Waterloo-Wellington region in response to their feedback.  It is designed to support health care providers in integrating behavioural change strategies with their patients in a quick 5 or 10 minute office or clinical visit.

The program has been accredited by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the Ontario Chapter for up to 3 Mainpro-M1 Credits.
