About this title:
Group work and patient education are vital aspects of improving health outcomes in all settings, by helping patients and clients manage their conditions, and by promoting and supporting behaviour-change for improved health.
Concise, accessible, and easy-to-read, this new title in the popular "How to..." series is designed to support nutritionists, dietitians, nurses and other healthcare professionals to facilitate healthy lifestyle change through group education. How to Facilitate Lifestyle Change - written by acknowledged experts in nutrition, dietetics, and public health - covers the entire group education process, from initial planning, to delivery and evaluation. Topics range from agreeing aims and objectives and structuring a session; through considering practical aspects, such as setting, and managing challenging group members and participant expectations; to evaluating and refining a session plan for future use. It also provides an overview of the key evidence base for group learning, relevant theories and models, peer support, and e-learning opportunities.
Including case studies to illustrate the real-life application of each topic, practice points, helpful checklists, and a range of practical tips, How to Facilitate Lifestyle Change is the ideal resource for anyone involved in group patient education and the facilitation of health-behaviour change.
