Managing obesity is a major and increasing challenge for the Australian Health System. While GPs have an important role in the assessment and management of obesity and its complications, the intensity of support required for most obese patients to achieve and maintain weight loss is much higher than the amount of support it is possible to provide in routine practice.

Prof Mark Harris (CPHCE), Prof Jon Karnon and Jodi Gary (University of Adelaide) will present at the webinar to discuss a range of patient, practitioner and system factors that influence GPs decision to refer patients for weight management support, some of which can be addressed to improve referral.
