Here is a presentation on opportunistic health promotion and managing obesity by Dr KE Leedham-Green, King’s College London. It is about approaching the sensitive subject of weight with patients. There is also a sheet giving some more detailed information about taking a dietary history.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence have produced guidance on giving brief advice about physical activity to adults in primary care practice. The recommendations include:
- information about current UK recommendations in relation to physical activity
- identifying adults who are inactive
- delivering and following up on brief advice
