    Using Making Every Contact Count (MECC) to have Good Conversations in Challenging Times.

    About this event

    The course is designed for any frontline workers who are in a position to have short conversations with the public and use these to deliver very brief interventions that support peoples’ health and wellbeing.

    The Training will cover the following 5 modules:

    • What is MECC and why is it important – including the public health case for very brief interventions
    • What makes for a good conversation? – interactive sharing of experience among participants, recognising what they are already doing well
    • Key skill areas intrinsic to MECC conversations – review of skills and top tips
    • Models and simulations – basic theory and structure of a MECC conversation, audio and video simulations (including the COM-B and the 3As/4As model)
    • Resources to support you to MECC – introducing and using key online resources, such as MECC Link and local service directory resources.

    The virtual 2 hour session will be hosted on Microsoft Teams. Participants will receive joining details prior to their booked session.
