Learn how to take into account patient-centred considerations for weight conversations

Patient-centered care encourages a positive therapeutic relationship and respects the patient’s needs and preferences. This means that patients should always be given a choice about whether they wish to discuss weight as part of their healthcare management. Patient-centered care and communication about weight is explored in detail in Weeks 4 and 6.
