This training session will provide attendees with a basic overview of how to talk to people about, and how to offer advice on, lung health and stopping smoking, making them a ‘Lung Health Champion’ within their organisation.
|When||Tuesday 22 October at 9:30am to 12:30pm, 2019|
St Swithun's Community Centre
Arncliffe Road, Wakefield, WF1 4RR
The session is aimed at people who work and volunteer in communities in Wakefield District, who have contact with people through their work / volunteering.
The training will be delivered by the Making Every Contact Count (MECC) Team at Wakefield Council. MECC conversations are person led and focus on what a person thinks they may be able to do to make a positive change to their lifestyle. It is then about empowering people to seek out their own solutions to supporting their own health and wellbeing.
The Making Every Contact Count – Lung Health session will allow people to:
- Be competent and confident to deliver this intervention
- Know about local services and how to signpost people to help them to access them
- Deliver ‘very brief’ or ‘brief’ evidence-based interventions for lung health and lifestyle behavioural change
- Improving mental health and wellbeing
- Reducing alcohol intake
- Eating more healthily
- Increasing physical activity
- Financial and housing advice
