Public Health England has published a literature review to understand conversations about work in healthcare and identify opportunities to make work conversations a part of everyday health interactions.
PHE’s ‘work as a health outcome’ programme seeks to encourage healthcare professionals to have supportive conversations about work and health with their patients.
The programme has been informed by the evidence base for Making Every Contact Count (MECC).
In a bid to understand whether the MECC framework is transferable to this context, PHE undertook a comprehensive literature review.
The review presents key findings, discussions and recommendations and is intended to support policy officials in central and local government.
