Delivering brief interventions for children above a healthy weight

Webinar summary

27 November 2019

Speaking with families about the importance of maintaining a healthy weight can be challenging, and supporting families to make the necessary changes, even more challenging. General practitioners can play a key role in supporting patients.

This webinar demonstrates how to deliver a brief intervention to children, young people and their carers in as little as 2-3 minutes. Aspects of this include motivational interviewing and goal-setting using freely available resources and referral pathways to support children who are above a healthy weight.
