Motivational interviewing can be a powerful tool to help patients make changes to improve their health and wellbeing. The OARS acronym (Open-ended questions, Affirmation, Reflective listening, Summarizing) is a useful framework for these visits. Patients are more likely to achieve goals discussed if they are SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time Limited).
