Healthy weight coach elearning programme
The Office for Health Improvement and Disparities has worked with HEE eLearning for Healthcare to develop a new Healthy weight coach elearning programme, which has been launched today.
The Healthy weight coach elearning programme is for colleagues working within primary care networks, healthcare practices and pharmacies who are interested in supporting people who want to prioritise their weight, health and wellbeing.
Healthy weight coaches will be well-placed to signpost or refer people to national or local weight management services as part of the government’s funding to expand services in 2021/22.
A reference guide has been developed for primary care networks, healthcare practices and pharmacies interested in training staff, and individuals interested in undertaking training, to become a healthy weight coach.
The training is available on two eLearning platforms:
- Personalised Care Institute’s eLearning platform
- Health Education for England’s eLearning for Healthcare hub
For more information on the Healthy weight coach elearning programme visit the Healthy weight coach programme page
