Project aims and objectives
This research programme was established to investigate the evidence base for Tier 3 interventions, and specifically to test the idea that a group-based behavioural intervention can be an effective model of care for these services.
Working with a national team of specialist service providers, service users, Tier 3 commissioners, dietician, psychological and implementation science experts we have devised a proposal to optimise how the dynamics of how a group-based service for people with severe obesity may be developed and used.
For more information, see the project’s publication on group-based intervention for people with severe obesity:
- How Group-Based Interventions Can Improve Services for People with Severe Obesity
- Dr Mark Tarrant on group relations and delivering healthcare.
We receive ongoing support from The Association for the Study of Obesity.
