Description

Have you ever heard… “Patients don't change.” “Don't waste your valuable few minutes on counseling; better to use medications, which we know work.”   It’s time to change this perception!

In primary care, we have all been challenged by our patients with co-morbidities…hypertension, depression, obesity, prediabetes, chronic pain, and more. 

We all know about the specialty of preventive medicine…but lifestyle medicine remains elusive for many of us. 

So how do we offer evidence-based lifestyle medicine interventions as the first and primary mode of preventing and, when appropriate, treating chronic disease?  

We all know that modifiable behaviors – especially unhealthy eating and physical inactivity – are major drivers of death, disease, and healthcare costs….but we don’t all focus on this in our practice. 

What you will learn how to….

  • Empower patients and equip them with tools necessary for self-care and self-management of lifestyle-related health problems 
  • Create a practice environment that supports healthy lifestyle and choices
  • Incorporate lifestyle changes for diabetes, cardiovascular disease… and more! 
  • Transform your practice and incorporate lifestyle medicine into every encounter. 

When you are trained in lifestyle medicine you are able to diagnose patients, prescribe medications only as needed, and create individualized treatment plans for promoting healthy lifestyles. You can improve patient outcomes and see sustainable results!

In this course, you will hear from six experts in lifestyle medicine, clinicians who are incorporating these practices every day.  You will receive the information you need to:

  • Implement lifestyle interventions in time-strapped clinical practices
  • Use health coaching to facilitate behavior change in key lifestyle areas
  • Control Cardiovascular Disease…Lipid control, hypertension, and blood pressure control
  • Manage Diabetes…prevent and reverse the symptoms
  • Assess patient’s strengths and weaknesses, resources, preferences, and stage of change
  • Learn to treat, reverse, and prevent chronic disease through lifestyle change
  • Supplement the care you deliver
  • Use lifestyle medicine with your pediatric patients

Bonus!  You will receive downloadable PDF handouts from the American College of Lifestyle Medicine

Earn up to 12.5 CE hours!
