Brief Opportunistic Advice can be delivered in a minute or two, and is focused mainly on giving professionals the skills to ASK, ADVISE and ASSIST on a range of health behaviours.
Brief Interventions usually use formal screening tools and take around 20 minutes to deliver.
Both need to be delivered with great communication skills....our training and coaching packages ensure that staff practise and then use their new skills and continue to do so.
