Healthy Conversation Skills training supports you in your role as an agent of change – helping you to be more effective to have empowering conversations with  patients, clients and whānau to make lasting lifestyle behaviour changes to improve their long term health and wellbeing.

Register now for one of our workshops using the link below each table or contact us: info@healthystartworkforce.org.nz to schedule a session exclusively for your team.

There is no cost for practitioners residing in New Zealand to attend Healthy Conversation Skills training as it is funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Health.

A minimum of 10 registered participants are required for all workshops. We will advise you in advance if we do not have the required number and will reschedule the dates.  

Remember to keep checking back as we are continuously adding training sessions to the calendar.

If you do not reside in New Zealand, we welcome your enquiry on our professional development courses.  Please contact s.miller@auckland.ac.nz to discuss how we can make this happen for you.
