The workshop begins with an introduction to Lifestyle Medicine, exploring the evidence base on which Lifestyle Medicine is founded. Determinants of chronic disease will be explored and key domains introduced, including nutrition and physical activity science and prescription, and the fundamentals of behaviour change.

About the workshop series
This series of one-day workshops is being designed to systematically provide health professionals with the knowledge and skills required for the quality practice of Lifestyle Medicine.
Topics covered include the fifteen core competencies of Lifestyle Medicine, as identified in “Physician Competencies for Prescribing Lifestyle Medicine” (JAMA.2010;304(2):202-203), across domains including the psychology of health behaviour, diet and nutrition, physical activity, smoking cessation, alcohol risk reduction, sleep, stress management, emotional wellbeing and practitioner self-care.
Targeting the key learning outcomes of the International Board of Lifestyle Medicine (IBLM), this workshop series will systematically establish your foundation in Lifestyle Medicine and at the same time, begin to prepare you for the Board Certification in Lifestyle Medicine exam.
More workshops will be announced as they are developed.
