Description

Latest Dates: Monday 23rd July 9.30-12.30 and Monday 3rd September 9.30-12.30

Help improve people's lives with a very brief health chat

Making Every Contact Count is about all of us doing a little to address people’s lifestyles in order to reduce the burden of preventable conditions like cardiovascular, respiratory and liver diseases, diabetes and cancers. The method is evidence-based and in line with NICE guidance on behaviour change.

This free 3 hour interactive course is for anyone who works face-to-face with North West London residents, particularly if you are in the NHS, Council or Voluntary Sector. The training will give you the skills and confidence to...


1. ask people about:

Smoking

Alcohol

Physical Activity

Healthy Eating

Mental Wellbeing

2. give some simple 'nuggets' of advice

3. direct them to further information and support


...all in a way that helps them take control of their own lives and make positive lifestyle changes





'An entirely different and useful learning'

'Really useful and thought-provoking.

'Turning the old ways on their head'
