Weight Management Resources
The WMIG Weight Management Resource Pack on CD is now available to order from the INDI office (cost €150).
It provides a range of resources to support behavioural dietetic interventions underpinned by evidence based practice. The resource pack for dietitians was developed for adult weight management in a one-to-one setting by adopting weight management resources originally created by the British Dietetic Associations’ group ‘Dietitians Working in Obesity Management’ (DOM UK, with their kind permission) in addition to development of an additional resource by the WMIG working group on weight maintenance.
The pack contains 16 resources, 3 of which are reference documents for the Dietitian. The 13 patient resources follow an evidence-based approach to lifestyle and behavior change for weight management. They stand alone and are intended to be fully flexible. One, two, three - or more - of the resources may be used in any one consultation.
Topics covered by the resources include: Time to lose weight, Planning your meals, Controlling your portions, Take-aways and eating out advice, Weight Maintenance and Food Diaries, as well as a User Guide for the package of resources.
A report on the development of this resource pack is available for members to download from the members only section of the website.
