How to score MI-inconsistent behaviour Follow-up consultation (it is not clear what preceded) Targets are overlapping (e.g. target 2 and 4)
How to score the various components in a target when some occur and others not or badly It is easier to assess good consultations It is not clear if the content or the process of the target should be rated or both (e.g. target 4)
