Core Learning Path launched

The Core Learning Path on obesity management is now available to purchase via SCOPE e-learning.

Including eight e-learning modules created by leading experts, the Core Learning Path provides the essential knowledge and information on obesity management. After completing the course, the health professional will have a clear understanding on the causes of obesity, the regulation and vigorous defence of body weight, the complications of obesity, how to raise the issue of obesity, how to take a history and conduct an examination, how to achieve weight loss, how to keep the weight off and how to address obesity in children and adolescents.

The Core Learning Path is evidence-based and will ensure you have the skills and knowledge to manage obesity with confidence. All users wishing to become SCOPE Certified are required to take this essential course, which can be purchased in the SCOPE store for a standard cost of £70. Discounts are available for existing subscribers, World Obesity members and users in low-and-middle income countries.

All 30+ SCOPE e-learning modules outside of the Core Learning Path are now available for free. We made this decision to ensure income is no barrier to effective obesity education. These 'supplementary modules' will enhance and expand upon knowledge gained in the Core Learning Path. To access our free modules, simply register with SCOPE and access the catalogue via the drop-down menu in the top-left corner.

SCOPE (the Specialist Certification of Obesity Professional Education) is the only internationally-recognised certification in obesity management. It equips health professionals with up to date, evidence-based obesity management resources, to better treat their obese patients and to excel in their careers.
