One You East Sussex, the county’s new integrated healthy lifestyle service, will be offering a range of training for healthcare professionals, service managers and frontline staff. Below are details of the courses we have coming up; we can also arrange a bespoke programme for your organisation, just let us know if this is of interest and we’ll get back to you!
A one-day core training course aimed at Practice staff new to NHS Health Checks delivery or those who would benefit from a detailed overview of the aims and practical training on delivery. The course does not cover point of care testing as it is assumed prospective delivery staff will already be familiar with this.
This half day course covers a local progress report, refresher on policies, particularly the 4 and 12 week quit definition, and a refresher of standard treatment protocol, medication and electronic cigarettes. We will also go over success sharing and recap on tackling tricky patients.
The dementia element to the NHS Health Check programme enables healthcare professionals to talk to their patients about how they can reduce their dementia risk, such as by maintaining their social life, keeping mentally and physically active and stopping smoking.
This free half day training course has been developed to support NHS Health Check practitioners to support them with the dementia component of the check.
This training is an approach to healthcare that ensures you will have the skills, knowledge and confidence to ‘make every contact count’ when opportunities arise with patients. You will be well equipped to have brief conversations about their health and wellbeing and on how they might make positive improvements. Combined with practical face to face skills training you will receive on this course you will be well equipped to engage patients in difficult conversation.
Some patients report not fully understanding their CVD risk or how to reduce their risk following their NHS Health Check. Local practitioners have also identified communicating CVD risk as an area they would like more training, information and support on. This free half day training session has been developed to support NHS Health Check practitioners to improve their CVD risk communication skills and maximise patient outcomes following their check.
