Better Health North East Health Advocate Training March 25, 2010

Posted by mjpower4 in Work.

Well here we are at the Health Advocate’s trining day for the Better Health North Easat awards. What a motleuy crew of highly motivated and forthright individuals (sic). The content well for me it was quite basic but nonetheless interesting of sorts after the initial technical hitch. What is a training day without an IT balls up it’s like cream in your coffee unless you are healthy eating I guess 🙂

The trainers were highly motivated and this is obviously the pinnacle of their career in large group health promotion. The usual alcohol advice mixed with 5 a day with bread, pasta and rice. I noted no one answered the question of where the evidence base was for this advice- an answer sharply avoided me thinks. I objected to the recommendation of complimentary or alternative remedies especially in light of recent government committee advice but this was also ignored. Again a sharp case of deflecting the argument.
Overall an enjoyable day and reinforced what I already new but nice to network and see new people and get a different opinion and enjoyable. A number of fire fighters were present so that they will be able to deliver core health messages to staff.
