Improving metabolic health drives up odds of lifespan, health-span and disease-free living. In this webinar we explore practical but precise ways to measure it in clinical practice. We will also discuss assessing a metabolic health patient’s/client’s readiness for change, how to manage different levels of readiness for change, and the five domains (“5 Keys”) of knowledge and skills necessary to increase the odds of maintaining a transformational lifestyle change: psychology, nutrition, physical activity, environments, and accountability. Upon completion, clinicians will be comfortable in assessing readiness for change to manage and allocate their professional, mental and emotional energy better for self-preservation, as well as be more confident via having a lifestyle change system (5 keys) from which to work and increasing the odds of successful coaching of patients ready to pursue transformational lifestyle change.
