This innovative two day workshop* will provide participants with the theory and skills to support behaviour change both at the individual and population level. In the first part of the course, participants learn and practice basic communication skills to allow them to have purposeful conversations with clients/patients to help them assess readiness, consider change and move them in the direction of positive health. The second part of the course explores the concept of population nudges and participants consider their role in changing behaviour at the group or population level.

Style: A range of interactive exercises, theory and skills practice.

This course is aimed at: Anyone who interacts with patients, clients or customers and could use those interactions as opportunities to promote and support healthy behaviour change.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding “Nudging” within the context of providing brief advice and promoting health at the individual level
  • Understanding the different stages of change within the Transtheoretical Model of Behaviour Change
  • Understand and apply good communication skills when talking to people about behaviour change
  • Understand the different factors that can influence people’s health
  • Understand nudging within the context of improving health at the population level
