Clinical practice guidelines for the management of overweight and obesity in Adults, adolescents and children in Australia

About this resource

These Guidelines are designed for use primarily at the level of the individual who is overweight or obese, while acknowledging that individual choices are shaped by the wider environmental and social context. The evidence-based recommendations and practice points focus on clinical and physical aspects of care. An underlying principle is that care is centred on the needs of the affected individual, that it is culturally appropriate, nondirective and nonjudgemental, and that it enables people to participate in informed decision-making at all stages.
