Introduction to talking to patients about health and weight

Tuesday, May 11th 2021
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

We know weight management conversations can be a difficult topic for health professionals to navigate, with time constraints and sensitivities around the topic. This is why Cancer Council Victoria has developed ‘Talking to patients about health and weight’, an accredited online training course.

This webinar will provide a brief introduction to the training topics including: The importance of weight management conversations, behaviour change conversations using engaging, non-stigmatising language and the 5As framework. A GP will also discuss how he has used the training in practice and how you can apply this to your role. Presented by Stavroula Zandes, with special guest Dr Gihan Jayaweera.
