The Ministry for Health is committed to tackle the problem of obesity through a multifaceted approach. Training of health professionals is one of the prioritised strategies. Hence the Ministry has teamed up with the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO) to develop a course which is intended to deliver high level multidisciplinary training in the prevention and management of childhood obesity to Maltese health professionals.
Course content will be delivered by European KOLs (Key Opinion Leaders) and education experts on the 20th April 2017, between 08:00 and 16:00. Kindly refer to the course programme for more information.
80 places are available on a first-come, first-served basis for this course, which will increase the knowledge, skills and competency of participants to recognize, manage and prevent childhood obesity in practice. Motivational Interviewing sessions will be integrated into the training course, so that participants can gain practical experience of using this technique to help patients.
Participation will be open to health professionals and allied health professionals working in Malta. There is no registration fee. We expect to receive a large number of applications, so prompt registration is advised.

We strongly encourage you to attend in order to improve your skills in these areas, and to enhance collective efforts to tackle obesity.
The deadline for registration is Satuday 15th April 2017.
