From mental health and diet to screening and physical activity, the potential for lifestyle changes to impact patient health can only be reached with individual commitment and willingness to change. As a healthcare professional, endeavouring to achieve that in your patients can be frustrating at best. At worst it can damage hard won therapeutic relationships. This interactive workshop will take you through the basics of behavioural science to help you understand what drives human behaviour and attitudes to change. It will then enable you to put that knowledge to practical use and empower your patients to embrace lifestyle change.
