Everyday Interactions focusses on the public health impact of four of the key healthcare professions within the wider workforce: nurses and midwives, dentists, allied health professionals and pharmacists (although we hope it will have wider appeal) and aims to support these healthcare professionals as they record and measure their public health impact.

Key recommendations

  • Healthcare professionals to start to record and measure the impact of brief interventions
  • Health Education England, employers and professional bodies to invest in training for HCPs in MECC/brief interventions
  • Individual healthcare professionals to increase the number of public health priorities that they invest in
  • NHS England to build recording of brief intervention activities into electronic records

Public health impact pathways

The impact pathways produced in Everyday Interactions will support healthcare professionals to record what they ‘do’ in their interactions with individuals, what data can be collated and also the possible impacts from these interactions.

Demonstrating impact on these public health priorities is important to improving the public’s health, reducing health inequalities, and ultimately, preventing premature deaths from causes that public health interventions can, and should, prevent.
