Date: 04 September 2012
Description: Development and initial Validation of the Minnesota Edinburgh Complexity Assessment Method (MECAM) for use within the Keep Well health check

Equally Well recommended that the Keep Well health check include an assessment of anxiety and depression. In response the programme commissioned the universities of Edinburgh and Stirling to develop and test a practical tool (MECAM) for nurses conducting Keep Well health checks that would assess mental wellbeing and bio-psychosocial need.

Two themed learning notes have emerged from the evaluation. These aim to identify key learning for potential future implementation. Learning note one summarises key learning around the MECAM tool.
