State-of-the-Art Approaches to Help Patients Initiate and Sustain Health-Promoting Behaviors

This immersive two-day Harvard CME course offers state-of-the-art strategies to guide patients to healthier lives. Education includes evidence-based strategies, tools and techniques to effect healthier changes in patients (and ourselves), including diet, exercise, sleep, weight loss, and stress management. This course also provides updates on payment structures that reward clinicians based upon patients’ health behaviors and health outcomes.

Past participants report a renewed passion for practicing medicine and reduced personal stress as they themselves learn to enhance their own health and to serve as role models for their patients.

Highlights of the 2017 program include:

  • The strategies that produce the best results for stress resiliency, sleep quality, nutrition, and weight-loss counseling
  • Guidance to prescribe exercise and perform risk assessments
  • Health coaching (it’s not “eat less; exercise more”)
  • Clinician self-care: what it is and why it matters
  • What really gets patients (even reluctant ones) to make healthy changes
  • Leveraging lifestyle medicine to prevent and treat type 2 diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, depression, anxiety, osteoporosis, dementia, certain cancers, and sexual health issues
  • When, why, and how to incorporate lifestyle medicine into your care of older adults
