Making Every Contact Count (MECC) Training

September 12, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

  • This event has passed.

MECC is an approach to behaviour change that uses the millions of day-to-day interactions that we have with people to support them in making positive changes to their physical and mental health and wellbeing. It supports the delivery of consistent and concise healthy lifestyle information, enabling individuals to engage in conversations about their health.

A MECC conversation takes a matter of minutes and is not intended to add to the busy workloads. Rather than telling people what to do, MECC is about recognising opportunities to talk to people about their health and wellbeing using the skills of asking and listening – it’s about enhancing the conversations we have.

This training is a free, interactive, 3 hour course for anyone working with the public (face-to-face or via phone) in Oxfordshire – including NHS, local authority or voluntary organisations.

In this training you’ll develop the competence and confidence to have conversations around smoking, alcohol, physical activity, health eating, and mental wellbeing – to support people to make positive lifestyle changes.

This training course is being organised by Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West ICS and Talking Space Plus Oxfordshire, and is funded by Health Education England Thames Valley. Our training is designed to complement free MECC e-learning offered by Health Education England available here.
