Training Courses

Course 1

Face to Face NHS Health Check Training with CVD Risk and Dementia Care

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.

It also includes a dementia element that 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.

Also, includes support for NHS Health Check practitioners to improve their CVD risk communication skills and maximise patient outcomes following their check.
