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’.

This one day interactive workshop is for anyone who provides frontline support to a person with their care needs either in their own home, residential service, day service, extra care housing, or respite service.

The workshops will offer advice on understanding some medical conditions how to recognise changes in a person’s condition in order to provide assistance or to call for further support. It will also highlight preventative measures to promote the wellbeing of that person and promote good practice.
The workshop will involve demonstrations of equipment and will include the opportunity for you to practice using it and recording data in a meaningful way along with the next steps.
