Improving outcomes through learning and development

HSJ Awards 2016: Improving outcomes through learning and development

Aneurin Bevan University Health Board - Living Well Living Longer Programme

People were invited on geographical and clinical grounds to attend 45-minute appointments to assess their risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

More than 4,000 citizens have attended, and referrals have been made to exercise, smoking cessation and weight management bodies among others. These service providers helped identify and develop key skills in assessment staff, who can make brief interventions.

Judges praised the “remarkable work targeting high risk citizens in the heart of deprived communities”.
