This course is designed to introduce participants to Motivational Interviewing principles and skills in order to increase the effectiveness of routine healthcare interactions. Motivational Interviewing is a style of communication that seeks to assist people in exploring their choices in health behaviour and life style. It is person-centred but also adopts a gentle guiding style. It was originally developed by William Miller and Stephen Rollnick in the field of addictive behaviours in the 1980s but over the past 20 years its utility has also been recognised across a spectrum of issues related to health and lifestyle related behaviours including obesity, diabetes, medication adherence, physiotherapy, and rehabilitation.
There is also the option to attend a further half day session 1 month after the full day event to evaluate and share experiences.
A number of HEE funded places are available for nurses and nurse-practitioners on a first-come-first-served basis.

This cadaver workshop will equip delegates with a good working knowledge of the surgical anatomy of the neck and will in particular include practice of parotid surgery, thyroid and parathyroid surgery, laryngectomy and different types of neck dissection.
Training will be delivered face to face at Hull York Medical School’s state-of-the-art anatomy facilities at the University of Hull campus. Under the direction and supervision of expert tutors, surgical trainees will become better equipped to perform surgical interventions to a high standard.
At Hull York Medical School a special “lite embalming” technique is used resulting in cadaveric tissues which are much more like real life. The course provides a big safety plus for surgeons and patients and a great advantage for our trainees, allowing a more true-to-life practice before performing procedures on a live patient.
