Care Makers are invited to take part in a webinar designed to introduce them to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) new guidance.

The new guidance makes recommendations on individual-level behaviour change interventions, aimed at changing the behaviours that can damage people's health. It includes a range of approaches for people aged 16 and over, from single interventions delivered as the opportunity arises, to planned high intensity interventions that may take place over a number of sessions. The guidance aims to help tackle a range of behaviours including alcohol misuse, poor eating patterns, lack of physical activity, unsafe sexual behaviour and smoking.

The aim of the webinar is to:

  • introduce the NICE behaviour change individual approaches guidance
  • introduce the themes in the NHS England Five Year Forward View (2014)
  • explore the Care Makers role in shifting the balance towards prevention
  • start a conversation with Care Makers about how they might be able to help to promote the messages to NHS staff in Care Maker daily activities
  • find out what further support/training Care makers may require to be an advocate for promoting the messages in the behaviour change: individual approaches guidance.

Webinar details:

Date: 3 March 2015 
Time: 3pm - 4pm 
Presenter: Jo Johnson, Project Officer (Public Health), NHS England (Nursing Directorate)
