Description:
The HSE-ICGP Weight Management Treatment Algorithm and accompanying BMI chart were developed by a multidisciplinary working group comprising members of the team from the Weight Management Treatment Service St Columcille's Hospital, Loughlinstown and HSE community based Dieticians, Physical Activity Co-Ordinators, Psychologist and Health Promotion Officers. Dr Sinead Murphy, Galway, represented the ICGP on this working group and provided the link between the group and the ICGP Quality in Practice Committee who approved the project. The aim was to provide a blueprint for GPs and primary care staff to assist in the prevention, detection and management of overweight and obesity in the community. The HSE in developing this and other supports for all areas of the health service, is advocating healthy lifelong weight management for all.
