Weight Management FAB E-learning module

The Weight Management FAB E-learning module is developed for healthcare professionals to give an overview of the New Zealand Clinical Weight Management Guidelines and how to engage with patients about their weight and the importance of achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. It is part of a blended digital solution, which uses methods of communication to the workforce by incorporating Twitter social networking, and a website 'hub' of practical tips, tools and the latest research to deal with patients who are obese or overweight.
