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).
