The Centre for Health, Exercise & Sports Medicine at the University of Melbourne has released EduWeight (E-learning for physiotherapists in weight management for osteoarthritis) on-line training.
The programme is available free-of-charge at this time to all users. It was developed in response to research that showed many physiotherapists felt they lacked the confidence, knowledge and skills to have conversations about weight with their patients with osteoarthritis.
Topics include: an overview of weight regulation, overweight and obesity; Examining weight stigma in physiotherapy and personal beliefs about weight; Communication approach for addressing weight management; Interventions for weight management; and Health behaviour change support.
