Obesity – lifestyle interventions

Webinar summary

27 February 2020

The prevalence of overweight and obese adults and children continues to be an increasing public health issue in Australia. GPs have a vital role in identification and treatment. A multidisciplinary, lifestyle intervention, approach with the use of dietitians and exercise physiologists may be appropriate in managing weight.

This webinar includes presentations from Meg Achilles, exercise physiologist, and Suzanna Greenwood, dietitian. It aims to help GPs set realistic goals with a shared decision making process using evidence-based, achievable and sustainable approaches to diet and physical activity.
