With its customized educational coaching approach, the program enables people with excess weight affecting their health to be eligible for required medical treatment, and/or to regain or maintain their professional status. The approach aims to develop healthy lifestyle habits among adults who are overweight and to promote their participation in the management of their physical condition.
The program can be selected as a complement to rehabilitation or in preparation for a specific medical treatment, such as surgery. It includes the services of a nurse, a nutritionist and/or a kinesiologist.
After an initial evaluation of dietary and lifestyle habits, medication, general state of health and motivation to lose weight, the follow-up program with a professional is implemented for 3 months, after which time it is reassessed.
