Online learning – Making Every Contact Count (MECC) Training Course from Berks West CCG

September 14 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

This MECC Training course is intended for individuals who are working  in primary care, the community, including volunteers

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 online training , for anyone working with the public (face-to-face or via phone) in Berkshire West Primary Care.

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 and funded by Berkshire West CCG. The training is designed to complement free MECC e-learning offered by Health Education England available here.
