A Guide to Making Every Contact Count
A new Making Every Contact Count E Learning programme has been designed, developed and uploaded to the E learning for health platform.
Make Every Contact Count (MECC) enables the delivery of consistent and concise health and wellbeing information and encourages individuals to engage in conversations about their health at scale across organisations and populations.
Developed in partnership with e-lfh, Healthy Dialogues, HEE, DH and Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust; the programme consists of four individual e-Learning sessions.

- 5 ways to wellbeing
The fundamental idea underpinning the MECC approach is simple. It recognises that staff across health and care, local authority and voluntary sectors have thousands of contacts every day with individuals and are ideally placed to support health and wellbeing. MECC is intended for anyone who has contact with people to “Make Every Contact Count” and develop public health knowledge.
