Every Contact Counts is a web tool that will help people who work with the public get the knowledge, skills and confidence to have that "chat for change" - that short conversation that may just put someone on the first step to better health and wellbeing.
Who is it for?
Anyone who has contact with members of the general public – nurses, doctors, firemen and women, porters, receptionists, policemen and women etc.
Whoever you are and whatever your role, you have an opportunity to improve other people's lives and help them to be healthier.
It's not about being a specialist but about knowing what the basic health messages are and knowing where to signpost people onto for further support.
How long will it take?
This e-learning tool is fairly quick and easy....it will take about an hour and a half to complete and you will be awarded a certificate of completion.
How will it benefit me?
You will know what the basic health messages are and you will know how to incorporate them in conversations...you can also apply them to yourself and your family and friends if needs be.
