UCLP training course: Behaviour Change for Health Professionals
February 1, 2013
UCLPartners’ Mental Health Programme has developed an exciting new course to support health professionals and organisations to implement evidence-based approaches that sustainably change behaviour and improve health.
This course provides an integrated approach to delivering behavioural interventions across a range of settings. Practitioners will learn how to identify opportunities for behavioural interventions within their current service and how to implement and evaluate their success.
We are offering funded places to health professionals who are interested in improving patient outcomes using behavioural methods and who are able to influence practice to support behaviour change.
Ideal applicants would be:
- Senior clinicians interested in how behaviour change techniques can be applied in their services
- Clinicians from respiratory, cardiovascular, diabetes, liver or other medical teams
- Nurses and health professionals interested in applying these skills in their area of practice
- GPs and their practice nurses
- Health professionals in commissioning roles
The course is due to begin in mid-March 2013 and is now open for applications. If you are interested in applying, please contact the course co-ordinator Steph Lietz, PhD, Research Associate, UCLPartners by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing date for applications: Wednesday 20th February 2013, 5pm
