#WeNurses - A 'can do' approach to making every contact count

Comment

The goverment is very keen on this, and the goverment is also keen on 'nudge theory' - gently pushing people into healthier life-style behaviours. If the discussion includes information of all types about conditions and treatments, I think it would be helpful. If it only includes 'nudges' - 'you could eat more fruit and veg', 'more exercise might help', etc, etc, then I'm guessing that patients will see this as being lectured to, and will rapidly drift into 'those are my choices - stop telling me what to do !'.
