By using open-ended questions and reflective listening, the healthcare provider can help the patient explore their ambivalence and find their own reasons for adhering to their medication regimen. This approach can help increase the patient's motivation and commitment to taking their medication as prescribed, ultimately improving their adherence and overall health outcomes.
