Why did we release this course?
The NHS is currently facing a chronic disease crisis and the drug budget is rising year on year – the estimate from the King’s fund is that this was £17.4 billion in 2016/17. The Department of Health estimates that 70% of total healthcare spending is due to chronic conditions. The Scottish government estimate that 80% of General Practice consultations are for chronic disease. The rise in chronic disease is also a global problem.
We know that the causes of chronic disease are rooted in lifestyle causes. A paper published in the Lancet highlights how Lifestyle Medicine should be incorporated into all medical specialities – yet this knowledge and evidence is barely touched on in the medical curriculum. The evidence is out there but it has not been brought into mainstream healthcare professional education. The science is moving fast and with weekly media reports on this field, medics are confused as to what we should be recommending to our patients and whether these news reports are based on scientific evidence.
One of our aims at Inspired Medics is to educate medical professionals so we can help to solve the global chronic disease crisis. We are doing this by bringing together the evidence and knowledge on Lifestyle Medicine in a way that is relevant for GP’s and healthcare professionals and applicable to our patients. The live conference in Leeds was a real success and delegates have reported what a difference this approach has made to their patients. We are now making this material and extra modules available online so it can be accessible even wider. We want to enable medics to make a difference and reverse the chronic disease epidemic we face.
