Public Health Nottinghamshire are piloting some falls prevention training specifically for the third sector, as part of their ‘Get Up & Go’ Campaign. TEAM have been asked to join the pilot to feedback from a third sector strategic perspective on what they might need to do to adapt the training to make it most appropriate for frontline workers in Mid Notts.
Following on from the pilot, training will be rolled out to each locality with a specific locality focus. One event will cover Mansfield & Ashfield, and one event for Newark & Sherwood. Invites will be sent to relevant groups when the dates are confirmed.
If you have a particular interest in this training, please contact me (Karen.firstname.lastname@example.org) to be added to my list.
Making Every Contact Count
What is Making Every Contact Count?
Making Every Contact Count is an approach to behaviour change that utilises the millions of day-to-day interactions that organisations and people have with other people to support them in making positive changes to their physical and mental health and wellbeing. It maximises the opportunity within routine health and care interactions for a brief discussion and delivery of consistent and concise healthy lifestyle information on health and wellbeing factors.
Evidence suggests that the broad adoption of the approach by people and organisations across health and care could potentially have a significant impact on the health of our population.
Rather than telling people what to do, Making Every Contact Count is about recognising opportunities to talk to people about their wellbeing using the skills of asking and listening. It’s about enhancing the conversations we have.
Making Every Contact Count is one of the core priorities of Nottinghamshire’s STP (Sustainability and Transformation Plan) and this approach is being embedded across NCC and the NHS. Both providers are asking Third Sector partners to sign up to this approach. Online training is free to access, although you will need to register for an account before you can undertake it. The E-learning modules are designed to support learners in developing an understanding of public health and the factors that impact on a person’s health and wellbeing, emphasising how asking questions and listening effectively to people is a vital role for us all.
