About the CPD course

This course has been specifically developed for healthcare professionals who are interested in advancing their core understanding of obesity and developing more practical methods for the prevention; management and treatment of obesity. This course consists of three individual 25-hour modules; all of which can be taken independently. Obesity: Behavioural Aspects reviews the emotional and psychological issues around eating and obesity; exploring the possible aetiologies that affect an individual's eating behaviour; Obesity: Causes and Consequences explores the causes of obesity in depth to facilitate a greater understanding of the problem in an individual patient. The course also includes an overview of the co-morbidities of obesity including: type 2 diabetes; complications of pregnancy; cognitive effects; sleep apnoea; non-alcoholic fatty liver disease; and cardiovascular complications; Obesity: The Solutions? questions the current approach to obesity treatment and whether current advice on diet; exercise and lifestyle is appropriate. 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. The modules are most suitable for GPs; doctors; nurses; physicians; surgeons; physiotherapists; dieticians; nutritionists; psychologists; and counsellors running weight-management clinics. Completion of the modules promises confident; highly skilled practitioners with a well-rounded understanding of every aspect of the obesity problem and how to effectively treat and manage it.
