East Metropolitan Health Service and Curtin University are hosting a breakfast seminar with Professor Aveyard. He has spent most of his career in tobacco control and the last 12 years has also worked on obesity, and latterly on preventative healthcare in general.
In his talk, Paul will
- briefly describe a large primary care trial that tested brief opportunistic interventions for obesity, showing that such interventions were effective and acceptable.
- discuss the thorny issue of engaging men with weight management and meeting goals for socioeconomic equity of outcome.
- outline the work he did using consultation recordings and the lessons learnt about how best to deliver brief interventions, leading to publication of national guidelines on talking to people with obesity.
- describe the implementation of the UK guidelines in 2021- what led to it and the outcomes so far.
A healthy breakfast will be available at 8am.
