Description

THIS COURSE IS DELIVERED OVER TWO HALF DAY SESSIONS - By applying for day 1 (12th March) you are committing to also attending 19th March. See details below

Are you..?

Making Every Contact Count (MECC) is about supporting people to make the most of every opportunity they have with the millions of people they come into contact with every day. Everyone who interacts with the public is able to make a difference to the health and wellbeing of the population by encouraging and supporting individuals to change behaviours that may be damaging to their health. Telling people what to do is not the most effective way to help them change. MECC is a skills-based training opportunity that encourages a different way of working and interacting to address their health and wellbeing.

Training includes…

  • Two half day sessions where you will improve your skills and confidence in delivering very brief interventions to encourage long term behaviour change.

  • You will have the opportunity to reflect on your practice and how you can make a difference every day.

  • You must complete the MECC e-learning between the two sessions.

Training outcomes…

  • Improved confidence in delivering very brief interventions.

  • Better awareness of how and when to use opportunities to talk to people about their health and wellbeing.

  • Be able to use effective language to get people thinking about their choices and support a behaviour change plan.
