This online course allows you to study at your own pace. All our teaching is designed to fit around your career. You will gain confidence in your understanding of the difficulty in applying solutions to the obesity problem in individual situations. Most importantly, your understanding will be linked to new skills that you can apply in your professional practice.
You will also be part of a network of students and graduates from our courses, ready to collaborate and debate this urgent health issue. You will no longer be tackling obesity alone.
CCH courses have been specifically developed for Health professionals who are interested in advancing their understanding of obesity and developing more practical methods for the management and treatment of obesity. The course is most suitable for GPs, doctors, nurses, physicians, surgeons, physiotherapists, dieticians, nutritionists, psychologists, and counsellors running weight-management clinics.
In this course we question the current approach to obesity treatment and whether current advice on diet, exercise and lifestyle is appropriate. We explore the reasons for the lack of success of these current strategies in the context of the highly complex and interconnected array of influences on eating and physical activity behaviours which underpin obesity.
We consider the need for aims and treatment to be personalised, addressing the underlying causes of the individual’s weight gain, their co-morbidities and the drivers of their behaviour. Government policies, public health measures, community based initiatives, and current NHS obesity care pathways and strategies, are reviewed and alternatives discussed.
In order to receive your CPD Certificate you need to complete and pass all the quizzes within this course. The Certificate will be automatically generated for you to download or print.
