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


@JulieVuolo stated “Know what the positive health messages are e.g. reducing obesity and smoking and role model the messages” I'm pretty certain that the reason this is being 'pushed', is to try and reduce things like smoking, obesity, etc. But surely most people who smoke, already know that smoking will probably be bad for them in health terms ? Most people who are very overweight, surely know that eating less would make them lose weight ? Anonymous | 1-Sep-2012 2:15 am has surely stated, what many of the people who will be at the patient end of these little interactions will feel - I don't think this can work well, for altering choices. It might work well, if it is being used to explain more (and previously unknown by the patient) options. But I could be wrong.
