Abstract

Introduction:
There is limited research addressing he experiences of patients in inpatient rehabilitation (rehabilitation), who often spend long periods in hospital, and the nursing approaches utilised.

Aim:
Based on evidence that Motivational Interviewing (MI) may improve nursing practice, this was a pilot study evaluating the feasibility of training rehabilitation nurses in MI and measuring patient experience.

Method:
Nurses underwent training and supervision focusing on MI spirit. Quantitative and qualitative measures were taken pre-training, two months post-training and eight months post training. Expert-by-experience research assistants facilitated patients’ participation in the study.

Results:
This study showed that training rehabilitation nurses in MI was feasible and relevant to their work. Patients participated in interviews and focus groups with support and potential improvements that require further empirical investigation in patient experience were found following the MI training.

Discussion:
This pilot study establishes the feasibility of a larger study addressing efficacy. Tentative qualitative findings question whether interactions between nurses and patients are valued in rehabilitation and support MI as a promising skill-set for rehabilitation nurses.
