This one-day NCSEM conference will explore the science behind motivation, adherence and long-term health. It will examine major theories of motivation and their application to healthcare settings, how habits are formed and how intentions can be changed into action.

The event focuses on motivation in several health contexts, including exercise interventions, medication adherence, and support for marginalised individuals within healthcare relationships.

The event will take place on the Loughborough University campus on Wednesday 25th September. It is priced at £35 per person which includes refreshments and a buffet lunch. To book your place please visit the Loughborough University online store.
