Become a patient or carer member of the group updating a guideline about the treatment of Obesity
The Public Involvement Programme and the National Clinical Guideline Centre (NCGC) are looking for applications from patients, parents or carers to be part of the group that will update a clinical guideline for the care of people with obesity: Obesity: Guidance on the prevention, identification, assessment and management of overweight and obesity in adults and children. Please note that only certain parts of this guideline will be updated and these are likely to be very low calorie or energy diets and bariatric surgery.
Members of this group will play a key role in making sure that the views of patients and their carers and their experiences and interests inform the development of the guideline and recommendations to the NHS.
All members of the guideline development group have equal status, which reflects the relevance and importance of their different expertise and experience. The group includes health professionals and researchers as well as lay members. All group members need to attend regular meetings and to prepare for them in advance, including reading relevant papers.
Deadline for application: 17 December 2013
