Making Every Contact Count
Tuesday, 25 January, 2022 7.30pm
We have been made aware of free Making Every Contact Count (MECC) training for pharmacy teams. Participants receive an RSPH accredited certificate upon completion of pre-course questionnaire, training session and post-course evaluation. Please see the link to the information here. Although the December date is during a morning which is not ideal for community pharmacy there is an evening session on January 25th 2022.
Why is this important for me?
MECC is an approach to behaviour change that uses day-to-day interactions that organisations and people have with other people to support them in making positive changes to their physical and mental health and wellbeing. MECC is aimed at making conversations about lifestyles issues and choices easier and more meaningful
Community pharmacies are well placed to have MECC conversations with their patients and customers. It can support signposting, Health Champions and running engaging public health campaigns, NMS, Discharge Medicines Service and helping people to make positive changes to their lifestyle.
