Most doctors are ill-equipped to tackle Britains increasing frequency of lifestyle-related diseases because they know worryingly little about how nutrition and exercise can improve health, a group of prominent medics has claimed.
There is a lack of knowledge and understanding of the basic evidence for the impact of nutrition and physical activity on health among the overwhelming majority of doctors. This has its roots in the lack of early formal training, they state in a letter to the Medical Schools Council (MSC) and General Medical Council (GMC).
They warn that the governments ambition to prevent tens of thousands of premature deaths from heart disease and cancer by 2020 will fail without a radical overhaul of how the 8,000 young people a year who start at medical school are educated about lifestyle and health.
They want the MSC, which represents the UKs 34 publicly funded university medical schools to support the introduction of evidence-based lifestyle education, including basic training in nutrition and the impact of physical activity on health and chronic disease into all medical curricula. All of Britains 250,000 doctors should also receive the same education and training to improve their ability to help patients with conditions such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease, they say.
