Obesity is a growing problem as it now affects one quarter of adult patients in the UK and is a leading cause of preventable morbidity and mortality. Statistics released by NHS Digital showed there were 525,000 admissions to NHS hospitals across the country in 2015/16 where obesity was a factor.
We would like to invite you to participate in a free accredited CPD activity, Adult Obesity in the UK: Why Can’t My Patient Lose Weight? to recognise why obesity is a complex and multifactorial condition that is chronic and relapsing. This activity also provides communication tips for starting the conversation with patients and various additional resources.
