In this on-demand web event, "Patient Behavior Change: Building Blocks for Success" from NEJM Catalyst, you’ll learn techniques for effective behavior change, what changes are achievable for better health, and which barriers to target.

Conversations about behavior change begin with the principle that clinicians should not assume they know how to incorporate patients’ values into medical decisions. Behavioral science has yielded insights into how to increase the likelihood of sustained health – and why some changes are extremely difficult.

Learn techniques for:

  • Creating better conversations among clinicians and patients through shared decision-making and other communication techniques.
  • Drawing on the power of community-based interventions to expand and maintain behavior change, both at an individual and population level.
  • Understanding why and how different behavioral strategies work, and how to carefully structure interventions.
