Resources, software and research tools
Resources, software and research tools for health and care professionals, patients, researchers and trial managers.
Helping patients to reduce their salt or saturated fat intake
Information booklets - ‘Cutting down on saturated fat’ and ‘Cutting down on salt’, developed to support healthcare professionals in providing evidence-based recommendations on how to reduce the intake of saturated fat to help lower LDL cholesterol and salt to reduce blood pressure. These dietary changes will help to prevent cardiovascular disease.
Supportive and effective conversations about weight management referrals
Primary care clinicians are encouraged by guidelines to offer people with obesity a free referral to a weight management service, like Slimming World or WW. In this video we provide specific, evidence-based, information about what to say when making an offer of referral. Following this advice will support clinicians to have supportive and effective conversations.
The NASSS-CAT tools have been developed to help you plan, undertake and evaluate technology-supported change projects in health or social care. They are based on the Non-adoption, Abandonment, and challenges to Scale-up, Spread, and Sustainability (NASSS) framework which has been combined with a complexity assessment toolkit.
