Lifestyle medicine is developing rapidly. According to the most recent insights, 70-80% of our medical consumption can be reduced thanks to responsible lifestyle interventions. An attractive prospect for the (prospective) patient, the health care sector and the government! But how do you handle this?
The Lifestyle Medicine Handbook is the first Dutch-language handbook (2016) with an up-to-date overview of the state of affairs in the field of lifestyle medicine. It is based on the most recent scientific findings in the field of behavior change, nutrition and exercise.
In addition to a description of the theoretical and scientific insights, this handbook also contains chapters on the concrete interpretation of how Combined Lifestyle Interventions (GLI) can be designed, the state-of-the-art lifestyle intervention GLI-TOTAL, and also guidelines for the desired approach to GLI in the Netherlands, through the division of lifestyle medicine into 4 GLI levels.
The Lifestyle Medicine Handbook is aimed at healthcare providers, health insurers, policymakers in the Dutch healthcare sector, as well as other government agencies that want to work on improving the general health situation of the Dutch population and that consider disease prevention to be of paramount importance.
The book offers an inspiring basis for doctors, lifestyle coaches, therapists, psychologists and others who want to gain knowledge about Lifestyle Medicine. In addition, it is useful for people in policy positions, education and for scientific research in the field of Lifestyle Medicine.
The international orientation of the writers in the field of lifestyle medicine means that this handbook (also internationally) occupies a pioneering position.
