Socioeconomic, psychosocial & environmental challenges of introducing lifestyle interventions

This interactive session will explore the challenges to initiating and maintaining lifestyle change interventions, and encourage participants to consider how they as health professionals can support individuals in overcoming them.

Learning outcomes:

  • How making changes to lifestyle habits is by definition abnormal
  • How the food and marketing environments in which we live can sabotage attempts at dietary change
  • How socioeconomic, family and psychological factors influence behaviour change
  • How health professionals can and should increase rather than decrease motivation
