Lifestyle Medicine: Tools for Promoting Healthy Change - LIVE STREAMING

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

State-of-the-Art Approaches to Help Patients Initiate and Sustain Health-Promoting Behaviors

Lifestyle Medicine will be held online this year, using live streaming, electronic Q&A, and other remote learning technologies.

This immersive two-day course offers state-of-the-art strategies to guide patients to healthier lives. Education includes evidence-based strategies, tools and techniques to effect healthier changes in patients (and ourselves), including weight loss, exercise, sleep, stress management, nutrition, mental health, and health/wellness coaching.

Past participants report a renewed passion for practicing medicine and reduced personal stress as they themselves learn to enhance their own health and to serve as role models for their patients.

Reasons to Attend in 2024
Our daily work as healthcare professionals increasingly involves caring for patients with diseases that are ultimately caused by or exacerbated by poor diet, lack of exercise, stress, and inadequate sleep. Yet professional training does not sufficiently prepare us to leverage our position of trust to help patients initiate health-promoting behaviors. At the same time, we are seeing payment structures rapidly evolve to reward clinicians based upon our patients’ health behaviors and health outcomes. These factors have given rise to an overwhelming demand for evidence-based lifestyle medicine practices that have been shown to prevent, treat, and even reverse chronic diseases. That is precisely what is offered at Lifestyle Medicine: Tools for Promoting Healthy Change.

Highlights of the 2024 program include:
• Obesity medicine: strategies for daily practice
• Stress, mindfulness, and meditation
• Advising patients on nutrition in 2024
• Lifestyle medicine for underserved populations
• Culinary medicine
• Health and wellness coaching in day-to-day practice
• Exercise is medicine
• Spirituality and health
• Exercise prescription and new data on the benefits of resistance training
• Brain energy: lifestyle and metabolic interventions for mental health
• Sleep problems: effective interventions
• Perspectives on clinician self-care in 2024: what it is and why it matters
• Transforming knowledge into action

Skills Advancement
Recognized experts in the fields of lifestyle medicine, behavior change, health coaching, exercise, stress management, obesity, and nutrition provide guidance and innovations for:
• Incorporating lifestyle medicine into your current practice
• Improving patient communication
• Building an effective lifestyle medicine team
• Engaging resistant patients

Optimized for Immersive, Interactive Remote Education
The 2024 program has been enhanced for distance learning, preserving many of the highly participatory and immersive techniques that are hallmarks of our in-person course. All presenters will appear in real time to facilitate live Q&A, and moderators will tend to ongoing chat and audience polling. In addition, all sessions of this program will be recorded and made available to participants for online viewing for 90 days after the end of the course.
