Description: Motivating patients or clients to change their health-related behaviors is core to the success of almost every episode of care administered by physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs), from short-term adherence to a post-op inpatient or home program; from long-term adherence to a lifestyle behavior change program. A major step toward enabling patients and clients to effect health behavior change begins with identifying your own perceived and actual facilitators and barriers to successfully effecting such change in your patients and clients, as well as their internal and external motivations, and their real and perceived barriers to changing.
