Fast Facts: Obesity

David Haslam, Gary Wittert

Description

“Not to broach the subject of excess weight with a patient is a dereliction of duty as a healthcare professional,” say the authors of Fast Facts: Obesity. “Patients who smoke are rapidly identified for intervention, and the same should be true of anyone who is obese”

Every consultation is an opportunity to educate and encourage patients to pursue better health. Fast Facts: Obesity is packed with practical advice on how best to support patients to improve their nutrition and levels of physical activity, and change their habits, with simple and achievable goals tailored to individual needs and concerns.
