AbstractThis Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) Project is a program evaluation of a Motivational Interviewing (MI) Training Program provided by Southeast Arizona Health Education Center (SEAHEC). MI is a counseling style that focuses on exploring and resolving ambivalence to elicit behavior change. The purpose of this DNP Project was to: 1) describe the Motivational Interviewing Training Program provided by SEAHEC for ¡Vivir Mejor! healthcare providers; and 2) evaluate the long-term effectiveness of the MI training program by assessing: a) if program participants have retained the MI skills they learned in the training program, and b) if program participants apply these learned MI skills one-year post intervention in their encounters with patients diagnosed with T2DM. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Framework for Program Evaluation was used to guide this program evaluation. An online survey was administered to the ¡Vivir Mejor! healthcare providers to evaluate the MI program. Overall, based on the survey results, there was a positive response to the SEAHEC MI Training Program. The results of this program evaluation are limited due to a low response rate. However, these results will be shared with key stakeholders to inform the development of future MI training programs for rural healthcare providers.
