The resources include:Very Brief Intervention toolkits (for 30sec-2min conversations) Brief Intervention toolkits: (for 2min-30min conversations) ‘Key Messages' posters Portable resources about local and national services Strategic briefings and presentations making the case for MECCResults: Resources, briefings and workshops delivered across West Sussex to approximately 510 delegates were well received and included:NHS: Healthcare Assistants; Pharmacy dispensers; Primary Care support staff; Nurse Advisors; Occupational Therapists; Mental Health teams; Dieticians; Orthoptists; Substance Misuse teams; Child Health teams. Local Authorities: Housing Support workers; Community Development teams; Library staff; Public Health leads and commissioners; Social Prescribing teams; Adult Social Care teams. Community & Voluntary Sector: Carer Support services; Age UK teams; Voluntary Action teams.Workshop evaluations consistently demonstrate that delegates: Know more about brief and very brief interventions.Increase their confidence to initiate conversations about healthy lifestyles.
