Brief Interventions engage people to think about their health in meaningful, helpful, supportive ways and effectively evoke change in behaviours.

The Nurse and Midwife Brief Intervention Scaffold Training is designed to deepen brief intervention practice for experienced practitioners. Participants will engage with the material experientially, drawing on and sharing their work experience as a key learning component.

What to expect

  • De-escalation training around psychosis or intoxication
  • Other barriers to brief interventions
