The Medication Interest Model (MIM) was developed by watching clinicians and case managers talk with their patients about their medications and holding over 150 MIM workshops with primary care physicians, nurses, mental health professionals and other allied health professionals. The result is a book filled with the type of wisdom and knowledge that can only be gained by learning from the skilled clinicians who talk with patients on a daily basis about their medications. Students (as well as experienced clinicians) will find this wonderfully practical resource to be a text they will frequently pull down from their shelves to absorb its wisdom long after they have left their training programs.
This highly acclaimed, Doody’s Core title has been thoroughly updated and expanded for the second edition: The Medication Interest Model (MIM), its motivational theory (the Choice Triad), and its over 100 easily learned and practical interviewing techniques are described and demonstrated with clear examples and compelling illustrative interview dialogue.

- Presents more than 100 specific interviewing techniques that are equally useful for medications for all disease states – from hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, asthma, and congestive heart failure to cancer, AIDS, and PTSD .
- Clearly shows how words powerfully impact whether or not patients are interested in taking medications and staying on them by providing the exact phrasings of over 100 interviewing techniques demonstrating, with clinical examples and clinical dialogue, all of their nuances for immediate, everyday practicality.

“Dr. Shea’s book on the Medication Interest Model (MIM) is such a necessary and crucial tool in the care of our patients. We may be skilled in the cardiovascular exam, or the pulmonary exam, or we may be superb in the comprehensive neurology or mental health exam, but without techniques like those found in the MIM, these honed skills become almost meaningless. Every clinician must read this book. It should be required reading for all medical students, nursing students, physician assistants, and social workers. The provider-patient relationship has not had such an advance since Sir William Osler.”

Previous Edition Reviews:
“In the following pages, you are in for a treat. You are about to enter the very soul of what we do, and you could not find a better guide . . . . destined to fill a giant void in the training of all medical and nursing students, as well as becoming a classic read for experienced clinicians in search of the art of medicine. My advice is simple – read it.”

“As an endocrinologist I can safely say that the secret to treating diabetes lies within the pages of this book, for the secret of successfully treating diabetes – as well as all other serious diseases – lies in improving medication adherence. No book provides better answers to this vexing problem. Laced with humor and compassion it is a fun book, a rare clinical gem, highly recommended for all generalists, specialists, nurses, case managers, and medical, nursing, and clinical pharmacy students. I read it carefully – twice.”

“A bright and refreshing writing style, packed with unusually insightful interviewing tips. Medication issues are central, complex, and controversial in the era of evidence-based medicine and shared decision-making; and Dr. Shea’s book is simply the best resource available on communicating with people about their medications.”

“A valuable book for even the most experienced clinician from primary care to endocrinology. Dr. Shea brings rich insights to a topic (what words we choose as we introduce medications and address their side-effects), that is seldom discussed in training. He reminds us that our words are as important a part of the pharmacopoeia as the medications themselves.”
