Description

This programme will explore research on weight stigma in health care and provide tips and tools to support patients of all sizes to live healthy lives. It is based on the ‘Preventing weight bias’ toolkit (developed by the Rudd Centre for Food Policy and Obesity), the ‘Health at every size’ principles (a social justice movement) and ‘Body mind intelligence’ (a workbook developed by Peggy Stella, exercise physiologist). Recent research suggests that weight stigma may influence the quality of care and outcomes for patients who are obese, and is a barrier to attending medical appointments. This programme will equip participants with
tools to help mitigate weight stigma.
