Self-Efficacy Enhancing Interviewing Techniques Study
Patient self-efficacy, or confidence in one's ability to take the necessary steps to achieve a goal, has been shown to influence a number of important health behaviors and outcomes. However, current ways of increasing patient self-efficacy are time and labor intensive and occur away from doctor visits, where most health care is delivered. We developed, and are testing in a study the effectiveness of a new way of teaching doctors how to talk to patients during office visits in a way that will boost their patients' self-efficacy for changing important health behaviors.

Controlled Clinical Trial
Work consisting of a clinical trial involving one or more test treatments, at least one control treatment, specified outcome measures for evaluating the studied intervention, and a bias-free method for assigning patients to the test treatment. The treatment may be drugs, devices, or procedures studied for diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic effectiveness. Control measures include placebos, active medicine, no-treatment, dosage forms and regimens, historical comparisons, etc. When randomization using mathematical techniques, such as the use of a random numbers table, is employed to assign patients to test or control treatments, the trial is characterized as a RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL.
