Healthy CHAT / Section Two: Learning About Healthy CHAT
about resources available to support the person to make healthy lifestyle choices.
Talk about relevant support and refer where possible.
Talk about local support groups.
Emphasise the value of support from your community.
Suggested wording for this element might be:
Can I refer you to the healthcare workers that can help you?
What do you think might work for you?
Can I link you in with the relevant service?
Advice needs to be adapted to the person’s readiness to make healthy lifestyle choices, their health literacy and their budget. Cultural aspects may also need to be considered.
