Event description

Description

Completing this course will help you to understand when and how to deliver appropriate lifestyle information to anyone who could benefit from making a change to a healthier lifestyle.

The course will provide the knowledge and skills to raise the issues of healthy lifestyles and to encourage individuals to consider stopping smoking, eating more healthily, getting more active etc.

Receiving prompts from people that they respect and trust encourages individuals to change their behaviour to improve their health

In your everyday activity as a professional, a volunteer, a friend or a neighbour you will be talking with individuals who could take simple steps to improve their health by changing their behaviour

Making Every Contact Count (MECC) uses a brief advice approach which usually takes up to 5 minutes. It involves raising a lifestyle issue with an individual (where appropriate) and signposting for further information and support.

The lifestyle issues may include smoking, healthy eating, emotional health and wellbeing, physical activity or drinking alcohol.

Following MECC training, you will be added to the subscriber list for our Healthy Telford newsletter – which you will receive via email.

When you receive your first newsletter you will have the opportunity to unsubscribe if you do not want to receive it in future.
