Event Overview
Welcome message:

Lifestyle Medicine in Day-to-Day Practice offers a new series of targeted lifestyle medicine educational and skills development programs. What makes this education unique is its focus on the “how-to” elements of lifestyle medicine -- how to expand your current approaches to treatment and prevention with pragmatic, effective, evidence-based lifestyle medicine interventions.   


This year, we offer three educational and skills development programs. You can attend the one(s) that align with your interests:


ACTIVE LIVES

December 7 - 8, 2018

Learn the most efficient and effective ways to guide patients to healthier, more active lifestyles.

 

Culinary Health Education Fundamentals (CHEF) Coaching – The Basics

December 6, 2018

This program provides a comprehensive introduction to culinary medicine – how to quickly and easily guide patients to better nutrition through evidence-based approaches to healthier meals. 

 

Culinary Health Education Fundamentals (CHEF) Coaching – Beyond the Basics  

This program builds upon the basics taught in the CHEF Coaching Dec. 6 one-day program with distance learning practice sessions.  

These highly interactive learning experiences provide practical education, opportunities to develop state-of-the-art skills, and take-home tools to enable your success in effectively and efficiently helping your patients adopt and sustain lifestyle behaviors that will improve their health and quality of life.


ACTIVE LIVES

December 7 – 8, 2018  

ACTIVE LIVES focuses on the “how-to” elements of helping patients increase their engagement with and level of physical activity. This includes strategies and skills development for:


Motivating patients (even reluctant ones) to increase their level of physical activity

Mastering the core competencies of prescribing exercise

Integrating exercise prescription into your current approaches to treatment and prevention

Screening and counseling patients on exercise options

Performing quick and easy in-office assessment of exercise risk, strength, flexibility, balance and aerobic capacity

Personalizing exercise (frequency, intensity, time, type) by a patient's age and health conditions

Counseling and health coaching

Demonstrating exercises: pediatric, adolescent, adult, and geriatric patients

Supporting self-determination while promoting physical activity in older adults

Applying the new 2018 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans

Writing exercise prescriptions for patients with disabilities

Tracking the results of a patient’s physical activity

Assessing, jumpstarting or advancing your own personal exercise regimen

Participants of this program describe a renewed passion for practicing medicine and increased levels of personal daily physical activity leading to reduced stress, as they themselves learn to pay attention to their own health and to serve as role models for their patients of all ages.
