The Australasian Society of Lifestyle Medicine (ASLM) is an interdisciplinary society of health professionals working towards improved prevention, management, and treatment of chronic, complex and lifestyle-related conditions. ‘Lifestyle-related’ includes environmental, societal, behavioural and other factors. Lifestyle Medicine is a rapidly growing discipline with numerous colleges and societies around the world and many more countries starting up.
ASLM members include GPs and medical specialists, allied health practitioners, public health professionals, health service delivery personnel, educators, scientists and researchers. In practical terms, Lifestyle Medicine involves a range of professionals working together to address physical inactivity, poor diet or nutrition, smoking, alcohol overconsumption, chronic stress, anxiety, poor or inadequate sleep, social isolation, loss of culture and identity, and other influences of society and environment.
Importantly, Lifestyle Medicine is both a scientific discipline, and a movement for change. We advocate for innovation in clinical practice and in prevention, in particular addressing the drivers of chronic disease and health inequity. Areas of focus include the reversibility of early stage type 2 diabetes, weight loss and weight management, nutrition and physical activity for mental health, reducing stress and improving sleep, and technology and innovation, such as Shared Medical Appointments as a practice innovation.
Be part of a bigger change and join the Lifestyle Medicine movement. You’ll feel at home in our energetic, resourceful and creative multidisciplinary society.

State-of-the-Art Approaches to Help Patients Initiate and Sustain Health-Promoting Behaviors
This immersive two-day course offers state-of-the-art strategies to guide patients to healthier lives. Education includes evidence-based strategies, tools and techniques to effect healthier changes in patients (and ourselves), including nutrition, exercise, sleep, weight loss, and stress management. This course also provides updates on payment structures that reward clinicians based upon patients’ health behaviors and health outcomes.
Past participants report a renewed passion for practicing medicine and reduced personal stress as they themselves learn to enhance their own health and to serve as role models for their patients.
Our daily work as healthcare professionals increasingly involves caring for patients with diseases that are ultimately caused by or exacerbated by poor diet, lack of exercise, stress, inadequate sleep, and smoking. Yet professional training does not sufficiently prepare us to leverage our position of trust to help patients initiate health-promoting behaviors. At the same time, we are seeing payment structures rapidly evolve to reward clinicians based upon our patients’ health behaviors and health outcomes. These factors have given rise to an overwhelming demand for evidence-based lifestyle medicine practices that have been shown to reduce patient risk for chronic diseases. That is precisely what is offered at Lifestyle Medicine in 2020.
