Obesity is a worldwide public health concern. In the UK nearly 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women are overweight. A further 1 in 5 adults, and 1 in 6 children aged between 2 and 15 are obese. This makes the UK population the fattest in Europe and the situation is getting worse. At an individual level, many overweight people feel unhealthy, miserable and alone with their concerns.
Whilst there appears to be no single cause of obesity, there is also no ‘one size fits all’ solution that is right for everyone who wants or needs to lose weight. The obesity practitioner needs knowledge about different weight loss approaches and their relative merits. You also must be able to call upon a range of evidence based tools to manage the issues each treatment pathway will involve.
This training course is designed to inform and empower clinicians in one increasingly important domain of
treatment; which is the influence of nutrition and physiology in the aetiology and management of obesity.
This seminar will focus primarily on interventions for working with adults. It is an excellent partner to the BPS
Approved course “Essential Obesity” and may have implications for the young. It offers suitable CPD for
professionals working with obesity in all clinical settings.
