Choices & Changes (C&C)

What is Choices & Changes?

Individual behaviors are well documented to have a substantial impact on the prevention, treatment, and course of a wide variety of illnesses and conditions. Clinicians Frequently express frustration about their capacity to influence patient behavior, especially when they see the negative impact of that behavior on their patients' health outcomes.

 

Clinicians are well-versed in how specific behavioral changes can improve patients' health, but are typically ill-equipped to help patients make changes.

 

Choices and Changes: Motivating Healthy Behaviors provides clinicians with efficient and effective tools to help them motivate patients' health behavior changes to care plans.
