Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with Healthy Dialogues, the Department of Health and the Lancashire Foundation Trust to update the Making Every Contact Count (MECC) elearning programme.

The MECC elearning programme is designed to support learners in developing an understanding of public health and the factors that impact upon health and wellbeing.

The programme focuses on how asking questions and listening effectively to people is a vital skill and these MECC interactions only take a matter of minutes while also complementing existing engagement approaches.

There are now four sessions within the programme:

  • What is MECC and why it is important
  • How to have a MECC conversation
  • Signposting
  • Five Ways to Wellbeing

The sessions, which have a combined learning time of approximately one hour, can be used by organisations, staff or individuals. It has been designed for everyone working across health and care.
