Updated and refreshed Five Ways to Wellbeing module

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) in partnership with the HEE Long Term Conditions and Prevention programme team are delighted to relaunch the Five Ways to Wellbeing module on the Making Every Contact Count (MECC) programme page.

Five Ways to Wellbeing is a standardised framework, containing a set of evidence-based actions to help improve people’s wellbeing. Originally developed in 2008 by the New Economics Foundation (NEF), Five Ways to Wellbeing is part of the wider MECC approach and encourages individuals to improve their physical and mental health and wellbeing through five acts:

  1. connect
  2. be active
  3. keep learning
  4. give
  5. take notice

Individuals who work across health, care, local authority, and emergency services may recognise the Five Ways to Wellbeing framework for public health intervention.
This elearning module is designed to provide information on Five Ways to Wellbeing and support learners to use their public facing roles to improve population mental and physical health and wellbeing.

The recent update includes the addition of new case studies, and a wider review of content to ensure the elearning reflects latest policy and clinical practice.

Inspiring wellbeing through five simple steps, this module underpins existing MECC approaches by highlighting the importance of everyday interactions. On completion of the module, learners should be able to define the term “wellbeing” and appreciate the links between wellbeing and health.  Learners should also feel confident about using the Five Ways to Wellbeing framework to support their practice of MECC.

To access more information about MECC, including the recently updated Five Ways to Wellbeing module, please visit the Making Every Contact Count programme page.
