Making Every Contact Count (MECC) is about making the most of opportunities arising in our day to day interactions to make a difference to people’s health and wellbeing. By supporting people to make changes to their lifestyles it is possible to prevent ill-health, improve health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities.
MECC Healthy Conversation Skills training will develop & enhance the skills of staff to have brief conversations with others about making changes to improve health & wellbeing – whether this is in relation to physical and emotional health, or other broader determinants of health. It is RSPH accredited.
This training would be suitable for any member of the general practice team – both clinical and non-clinical.
The skills can support general day to day conversations and consultations as well as areas such as NHS health checks, annual reviews, screening, carer health, cancer prevention & early diagnosis.
Healthy Conversation Skills training will support delegates to:
• Deliver ‘very brief’ or ‘brief’ evidence-based advice interventions for lifestyle behavioural change
