Food as Medicine: Talking about Weight

Gary Williamson, Monash University

Grow your confidence in answering common weight management questions

The obesity crisis means that healthcare professionals talking confidently to patients about weight is more critical than ever.

On this course, designed for healthcare professionals by an international team of experts in nutrition and weight management from Monash University and Portsmouth Hospital, NHS Trust UK, including GPs and nurses, you will be equipped with the latest information about weight management strategies, so you can feel more confident in having difficult conversation regarding weight with patients, and answering common nutrition and weight management related questions.

Places in this course are limited to 100, so please register early to avoid disappointment.

This course has been designed for healthcare professionals, specifically medical specialists, general practitioners and nurses.

However, the course may be of benefit to healthcare professionals such as dietitians and nutritionists with a background in nutrition, who may like a ‘refresher’ in this area of study.

You should have a good knowledge of science, medicine and healthcare practice.
