This course is suitable for those relatively new to engaging with the media and will also provide practice and feedback opportunities for those with existing media engagement experience.

Aims:

Through practical exercises, practice with peers and real-time feedback, you will develop the skills to communicate evidence-based nutrition information to the public via several media channels and platforms.

This course is designed for dietetic practitioners at all levels,  wishing to develop or enhance their knowledge and skills in relation to promoting behaviour change with service users.

There will also be some practical activities to help develop your communication skills for working in a person centred way. There will be time spent introducing more advanced skills such as motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioural strategies. You will leave having reflected on how you work and with ideas on the next steps to develop your skills further.
