Course Description

This course is suitable for healthcare professionals who offer, or are interested in offering, medicated weight management services, both privately and within the NHS. It is designed to equip you with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to treat patients with obesity and prescribe medication for the purposes of weight management. This course is available as a webinar or as an elearning package. We also offer a Remote Consultations e-learning module for healthcare professionals who will be providing online weight management services remotely. Please select your preference on your registration page.

This course is for UK-registered health care professionals only.

The content of this course focuses on specific prescription-only medications. Therefore, in line with MHRA guidelines, you must provide your personal professional registration number or PIN to enrol on this course. Our aim is to provide balanced and impartial training and advice to assist you in offering a weight management service that safely meets the individual needs of your patients.

If you select this option, please note that use of a suitable laptop/tablet/computer with a camera and microphone will be required. These two-hour webinar sessions take place on Zoom. We offer weekday evening and Sunday morning sessions. We do not allow recordings of the sessions, so you may wish to take notes. However, you will be sent a pdf copy of the slides. You will also be given access to other resources and learning materials after the course. Your certificate will be sent to you within two working days of attending the course.

Option 2: E-Learning – Medicated Weight Management Foundation Course + PGD

If you opt for the elearning package, you will need to complete this in full and pass a test (80% pass mark). This option allows you to study at your convenience and does not need to be completed in one sitting. Once completed, you will be able to download your certificate immediately, and you will be given access to other weight management resources and learning materials within a few days.

Option 3: Elearning – Remote Consultations for Obesity Management

This course is an optional e-learning module for healthcare professionals offering online or remote weight management services. Please note that while this course is free, it is not associated with the free Saxenda PGD. If you require the PGD, you should complete the foundation course first.
