About this workshop – Lifestyle Medicine 101
The first workshop in the series kicks off with an introduction to Lifestyle Medicine, exploring the core competencies and 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. Key clinical processes will be explored, and applications of Lifestyle Medicine discussed. This is the foundation for subsequent workshops, which will develop a more advanced understanding in these key areas, whilst broadening your Lifestyle Medicine knowledge base.

About the workshop series
This series of four one-day workshops (30 hours in total) is designed to systematically provide health professionals with the knowledge and skills required for the quality practice of Lifestyle Medicine.
