The 5 R's of Motivation

Description: 
Details how to increase a patient's motivation to quit using tobacco products.

For patients not willing to make an attempt at quitting, clinicians should provide a brief intervention to promote the motivation to quit. Motivation is also important for patients who do express interest in quitting. Ask patients to state their reasons for wanting to quit. Hearing their own answers helps strengthen their commitment, and you can provide positive reinforcement by supporting their reasons. Motivational interventions can be divided into 5 basic types, or the 5 R's: Relevance, Risks, Rewards, Roadblocks, and Repetition (Fiore et al. 2008).

Description: 
* According to three study findings, nearly 70% of American smokers (36 million) make at least one outpatient visit each year, but health care providers gave smoking cessation advice to only 40% to 52% of the smokers. * One recent study reported that only 15% of smokers who saw a physician in the past year were offered assistance with quitting, and only 3% were given a follow-up appointment to address the problem. * In 1992, about half of all adult U.S. smokers visited a dentist, but only 25% were advised to quit by their dentist. * Effective strategies for treating tobacco use include brief advice by medical providers, counseling, and pharmacotherapy. * Less intensive interventions, as simple as physicians advising their patients to quit smoking, can produce cessation rates of 5% to 10% per year. More intensive interventions, combining behavioral counseling and pharmacologic treatment, can produce 20% to 25% quit rates in one year. (From their website)
