Overview

Obesity is a complex, chronic, relapsing condition and, along with ageing, is the greatest contributing factor to chronic disease burden in our society. It is well recognised that Australia has one of the highest prevalences of overweight and obesity in the developed world, affecting over 60% of adults and 25% of children and adolescents.

There is a great deal of misunderstanding about the facts around weight loss among health professionals and the general public.

GPs and Practice Nurses are encouraged to attend this lunchtime session.

Learning outcomes:

  • Dispel the myths and misinformation about the best way to lose weight
  • Discuss the roles of nutrition, exercise and sleep in weight management
  • Consider pharmacotherapy in weight management
