Achieving Behaviour Change Workshop


In A Nutshell:

This workshop looks at behaviour change techniques and helps you to Achieve Behaviour Change by applying tried and tested theories from Psychology.

This unique one-day workshop developed by the Yorkshire Quality and Safety Research Group provides an opportunity to learn from leading researchers in behavioural insights. Interactive learning and discussion will lead to improved understanding and enhanced practice in improving patient safety through behaviour change.

The ABC workshops are delivered by both clinical and non-clinical speakers, with vast knowledge of behaviour change theories and experience of using these tools in practice. This course is open to anyone interested in enhancing their understanding of behaviour change theory, understanding how to design an intervention to support behaviour change and gaining familiarity with a behaviour change toolkit to support their own projects.
