Since the outbreak of the Coronavirus in my area, I’ve been pulling together the resources I’m familiar with from smoking cessation and general disease prevention to focus on getting folks to follow social distancing recommendations. What that means is that as people keep showing up to appointments here at the hospital, I’m meeting with them to encourage them to follow the rules.
I’ve put together a tool that has been really helpful. It’s based on the health belief model and motivational interviewing, 2 solidly evidenced paradigms for promoting behavior change. I mostly used the project MATCH materials and this study as a reference.
Consider this worksheet a draft. I’m sharing it widely in the hopes that others will take it and unfudge the numbers that I’ve put on there, or add another motivational component, or god-willing use this to make someone stay home when they otherwise wouldn’t. Word document contains my comments throughout, PDF is clean. Might be violating some copyright in that document somewhere, but I hope not. For my part, I give permission to use, steal, edit, whatever. Hope this helps!
