OPEN TO ALL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS, TUTORS AND STUDENTS

Good communication and behaviour change skills are essential for working effectively with patients and clients, as well as their families and carers. This full-day event will feature leading industry experts in behaviour change training, who will provide an introduction to different behaviour change methods, for all professionals working in nutrition and health.

Behaviour Change Training provides health and nutrition professionals with the knowledge and skills to enhance current practice and become more effective healthcare practitioners.

It can be hard to help patients and clients to make decisions that are right for them and will have a positive impact on their health. Using tried and tested behaviour change methods can help you to form better relationships with the people you’re working with, which can ultimately support them to make long-lasting changes to support their health.

The symposium will cover:

  • Introduction to the behaviour change approach to healthcare
  • What the behaviour change approach looks like
  • Working with groups in a behavioural way, including an example in practice
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Cognitive Behavioural Approaches

This symposium costs just £50 for the full complete day with discounts available for AfN, BDA members and students (please see below). It has been designed for all professionals working in the area of health and nutrition – in particular, dietitians, dietetic assistants, nutritionists, health visitors, midwives, GPs, practice nurses, community pharmacists, occupational health therapists, speech and language therapists, tutors and students.

Session Outlines

Every person working in healthcare has the ability to influence their patient’s choices. We all provide information on behaviour changes that could be made to optimise health.

Session Outlines

Do you find yourself frustrated with your patient’s lack of progress and their ‘apparent inability’ to put into practice your advice? You’re not alone.

Building a helping relationship with your patient creates the foundation for working behaviourally. This paves the way for the development of a collaborative relationship where the patient has an opportunity to tell their story and feels heard and understood and the practitioner easily gains the information needed to conduct their assessment. In this session we discuss the small but significant changes you can make to your practice that will help to engage patients and influence patient change from the earliest opportunity.
