A webinar for MIPS members. Alicia Zaniewska, Accredited Practising Dietitian and Senior Health Coach from Remedy Healthcare is sharing her years of experience supporting patients to address the many challenges associated with being overweight or obese. Having worked in private practice and medical centres with GPs, psychologists and allied health professionals, Alicia is passionate about enabling patient-centred care and regards a multi-disciplinary approach as key to helping patients reduce their risks and improve their health.

This webinar will examine a variety of challenges primarily dealing with the assessment and treatment of overweight and obese patients, a big issue for general practitioners. Alicia will discuss the clinico-legal risks of failing to address obesity including recent litigation and AHPRA complaint. She will demonstrate how general practitioners can broach the subject with their patients, what practical advice they can provide, an overview of the RACGP SNAP Guidelines and referral options including what you can expect when you refer your patient to a dietitian.
