Code: BH/19/0751 Introduction to Making Every Contact Count (MECC)

Making Every Contact Count (MECC) is a national Public Health initiative encouraging and helping people to make healthier choices to achieve positive long-term behaviour change by providing ‘very brief interventions’.

Very Brief Interventions are pro-actively introducing the idea of lifestyle change and motivating individuals to start making changes to their lifestyle behaviour(s). They are usually given opportunistically and are a short intervention (usually from 30 seconds to 3 minutes).

In this participatory session on MECC, we shall introduce the concept behind it and offer the tools and resources to deliver it, including resources and the key messages behind the new Public Health campaign ‘One You’.

Please read the course pre-requisites before requesting a place.

Code: BH/19/0754 Advanced Behaviour Change (2 Day Course)

This is a two-day practice focused self-reflective course providing the learner with the opportunity to enhance their knowledge, skills and confidence to engage in brief interventions to facilitate behaviour change with people whatever their readiness to change.

In between the sessions, participants will be asked to record a short 'behaviour change' intervention to then share on day 2, with the intention of gaining constructive feedback to affirm and enhance practice. Participants will develop skills in motivational interviewing, specifically differentiating between change talk and commitment language, and learning how to elicit and shape the two to strengthen the outcome of the interventions.

By the end of the course participants will have an enhanced toolkit of strateges they can apply when working with inidviduals to facilitate behaviour change over a short or longer term basis, including working with more complex cases and dealing with resistance.

PLEASE NOTE: This course is designed for practioners who understand and have practiced the fundamental elements of facilitating behaviour change, but now seek more advanced training in it.

We would encourage participants who have at least 2 years experience of working one-to-one with individuals in a change facilitation setting to attend.

On requesting a place you will be sent a Behaviour Change questionnaire which you should fill in and return to the trainer before the course start date.

Code: BH/19/0974 Smoking Cessation - Level 2 Training *For Pharmacy and GP staff only*

This course is restricted for Pharmacy and GP staff only.

All smokers in the country deserve high quality evidence-based behavioural support. For this to be achieved, Stop Smoking Practitioners need to be trained to a minimum standard and be able to demonstrate competence to fulfill their role.

Therefore training courses should cover relevant topics, as indicated by a set of learning outcomes. The attached document lists a set of training standards that have been agreed as essential for individual and group face-to-face smoking cessation interventions. In some cases, they are based on the need for Stop Smoking Practitioners to be able to accurately answer queries from clients on matters relating to smoking and smoking cessation. In other cases they are required for safe professional practice and in some cases they are based on a systematic analysis of behaviour change techniques that have a reasonable evidence base to support their use.
