This one-day NCSEM conference from September 2019 explored the science behind motivation, adherence and long-term health. It examined major theories of motivation and their application to healthcare settings, how habits are formed and how intentions can be changed into action.
The event focused on motivation in several health contexts, including exercise interventions, medication adherence, and support for marginalised individuals within healthcare relationships.
