Food for Thought - A novel clinical pathway for obesity management. (2014)$62,307
Description
Being obese is a significant risk factor to multiple medical conditions. Medicine tends to see obesity as just the 'weight' as opposed to interlinked physiological, mental and environmental issues. This research will be in the Northern Integrated Care Centre using best evidence regarding the psychology of eating and its contribution to obesity. Trial models of care/service delivery in the area of obesity management will be conducted. The project will provide a novel service for Northern residents most at risk of obesity and related conditions. It will develop a functional network between the Northern ICC, LGH, UTAS and Active Launceston. It will identify key issues impacting on referral pathways for obesity management across community, primary care and tertiary health care in Tasmania and contribute to greater understanding of referral pathways that support ongoing sustainability of behavioural management interventions. It will develop and evaluate a model that can be applied in other health organisations.
