There is substantial evidence on the role that diet and nutrition, physical activity and exercise, and resiliency plays in preventing and treating chronic diseases and improving quality of life. Traditional CME courses use a classroom-based format to educate healthcare providers in these areas. However, it is challenging for people to make beneficial lifestyle behavior changes, and education by itself doesn’t necessarily promote behavior change. This course is experiential as well as educational. It is based on The Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program, a program designed to help people make beneficial lifestyle behavior changes. In this course, attendees learn about lifestyle medicine, and actively participate in classes designed to help create an individualized wellness plan. Learning in this personal manner helps participants counsel patients on making these same healthy behavior changes.
Learning Objectives: Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to: (1) Recognize the relationship between health behaviors, chronic disease and the quality of life. (2) Assess patient wellness in their own clinical practice. (3) Employ wellness concepts in their own life such as healthier eating, increased resiliency and physical activity. (4) Demonstrate how to track healthy behaviors by creating an individualized learning plan.
Target Audience: This course is designed for providers at all levels practicing in internal medicine, primary care, preventive medicine, concierge medicine, cardiovascular medicine, and endocrinology. In addition, providers in all specialties may find the information and experience beneficial.
