Making Every Contact Count (MECC) is about encouraging and helping people to make healthier choices to achieve positive long-term behaviour change. To do this community pharmacy can support continuous health improvement through the contacts it has with individuals. Doing this will improve health and wellbeing amongst patients, customers and staff help to reduce health inequalities. The training will cover brief interventions, stop smoking, sexual health, weight, alcohol, mental health and signposting.

Safeguarding (level one) Safeguarding is implemented to protect the health, well-being and human rights of individuals, which allow people especially children, young people and vulnerable adults to live free from abuse, harm and neglect. From the training you will also have a clearer understanding of the skills, knowledge and confidence to deal with safeguarding issues. This training meets level one standards and there will be the opportunity to take this learning back to the pharmacy to share with other members of the team.

The training will be presented by: –

Zara Mehra, Regional Manager, East of England, CPPE Alison Walsh, Herts Health Improvement Service, Herts County Council

Treena Beard, Nurse Specialist Safeguarding Children, Herts Valley CCG

Siobhan Appleton, Deputy Designated Safeguarding Children’s Nurse, East & North Herts CCG

Alison Walsh, Assistant Manager, Herts Health Improvement Service
