Improving vaccine Confidence

Speaking confidently about the efficacy of vaccines and the Covid-19 vaccine programme is playing a really important part in building vaccine confidence and the work to encourage greater take-up, particularly amongst those who are unsure and have doubts or concerns about getting it done.

Our vaccine related Better Conversations training in London is enabling frontline staff have to have ‘real conversations’ that make a difference.

“I hesitated about getting the vaccine myself but didn’t realise it until I saw my excuse on the list!
The start of the presentation about motivational interviews, collaboration, evocation was very interesting to hear”

“Very helpful in thinking about the right mindset for approaching these conversations
and other scenarios unrelated to vaccination”

COVID19 has meant that many more frontline workers are having to deal with issues that impact health and wellbeing that are outside of their comfort zone. We also know that there is a great deal of fear and anxiety among communities (and staff) about COVID. Being able to have a good conversation can be a really effective way to help people overcome these issues, become more aware of the risks and support, and cut through misconceptions and misinformation.

Our MECC and Better Conversations training courses have been specifically designed for frontline staff, volunteers and champions who are in direct contact with the public. The training helps build staff confidence, knowledge and skills required for good conversations in these very challenging times and provide participants with resources specific to COVID19.
