To enable participants to deliver person centred care and support that empowers and supports pregnant smokers to change their smoking behaviour and sustain the change.
This course will provide participants with the skills to:
• Establish a positive relationship with the pregnant smoker built on trust and agreement.
• Empower the pregnant smoker to make their own decisions about quitting smoking.
• Demonstrate you understand the difficulties associated with quitting smoking during pregnancy.
• Explore the pregnant woman’s personal beliefs about her continued smoking, including her internal feelings and any external criticism or environmental pressures she may be experiencing.
• Adopt a non-prescriptive negotiating style that supports the client’s desire to change and encourages her to consider all the issues and make positive choices.
• Respond specifically and appropriately to what the pregnant woman says, utilising reflecting listening, open questioning and summarising skills to elicit self- motivational statements.
• Provide confidence building messages to build up the woman’s self-esteem.
The focus of this course will be to increase and enhance the one-to-one communication skills of the participants, through experiential learning, role play, small group discussions, sharing of case studies and team work.
