Abstract

Although this is a small-scale qualitative project, it is important, in that it explores Practice nurses' comfort with and confidence in delivering 'hunger training' in primary care settings. Practice nurses are pivotal to the delivery of weight management information, so it is vital that they are engaged with the interventional practices that they are required to promote to their patients. With minor modifications, the nurses involved in this research were positive about 'hunger training' as an effective intervention.
