Weight Management

The Murrumbidgee Lifestyle and Weight Management Program is based on current clinical practice guidelines for management of overweight and obesity in adults, adolescents, and children in Australia.

Fifteen practices from across the four MPHN sectors work with LiveBetter and MPHN to identify ways to improve their current processes for supporting people with lifestyle change and weight management. This process also includes how practices can improve their regular recording of BMI and waist circumference to help identify people who need support with losing weight.

The program targets adults (18 years and over) with a BMI ≥ 30 and involves five sessions covering nutrition and physical activity, with a focus on using practical and evidence-based behaviour change methods.

Practices have participated in health coaching training and will be supported by an expert panel during the delivery of the program.
