Different levels of MECC for different professional roles
It is recognised that some AHP roles are more suitable for more in-depth conversations about back pain than others. Please look at Your MECC Journey and decide which route is best for you.
NB: ALL AHPs follow the Columbo MECC route initially. Some will stop at this point; others will go on to Level 2 and some to Levels 2 and 3.
