This is a brief intervention to facilitate behavior change. Health professionals are trained to facilitate behavior change in patients by: introducing a practical clinical tool facilitating the mentorship of patients in modifying behaviours, structuring the clinical tool in an intervention platform that would be universally applicable to any behavior change and may be used by any healthcare professional who is part of the healthcare team and formatting the clinical tool to fit in a (realistic) short 3 minute intervention). Provides professionals with a universal intervention tool (a single technique that applies to all behaviours) which is part of a short three-minute empowerment process. The goal of this intervention is to accelerate and reinforce the natural process involved in the stages of behavior change. The two step tool involves assessing the stage of change and the level of conviction and confidence, and using motivational interviewing as the intervention technique.
