The American Medical Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The American Medical Association designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
In order to receive CME credit, please complete and submit the following three handouts provided in the right toolbar: Participation Record, Evaluation Form, and Post Test. Participants will need to answer 4 out of 5 questions correctly in order to pass the Post Test and receive credit.
At the end of this activity, physicians should be able to:
1. Describe the leading health indicators that are amenable to lifestyle change
2. Explain the evidence regarding the effectiveness of behavior change and improved health outcomes
3. Describe the competencies physicians should have to effectively perform lifestyle interventions
Statement of need:
This activity is an archived version of a two-part webinar series to help physicians and other health professionals recognize the challenges and solutions to addressing behavioral risk factors in primary care practice. In the first webinar, participants will gain an understanding of the competencies that physicians need to address behavioral risk factors. In the second webinar, participants will receive specific training on how to assess risk unhealthy behaviors, counsel patients, and provide appropriate prescriptions for patients in order to make and maintain changes.
