Background
With 25% of children and 63% of adults in Australia afflicted by weight problems, our nation’s health professionals have an urgent need to become experts in the identification and treatment of overweight and obesity.

World obesity experts from the University of Sydney’s Boden Institute are pleased to offer an exciting, evidence- and case-based interactive two day professional training workshop that will bring health professionals up to speed on the latest practical ways to recognise when weight is a problem for their clients, and what to do about it then.

- General practitioners, physicians and surgeons (40 Cat 1 RACGP points to those who attend both days, 30 Cat 2 points if you only attend 1 day)
- Dietitians
- Psychologists
- Nurses
- Social workers
- Other allied health professionals such as pharmacists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists

The Child Health CheckPoint: Using agile principles to embed physical health and biomarkers into a national longitudinal study

Tuesday 29 August 2017 1:00–2:00 pm
FREE SEMINAR

Venue: Level 6 Seminar Room, Charles Perkins Centre - D17, Johns Hopkins Drive (off Missenden Road), The University of Sydney, Camperdown NSW 2006 View map (PDF file)

Presenter: Dr Kate Lycett from the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, Melbourne, Australia

RSVP via online registration

Summary of talk
In 2015, Dr Kate Lycett travelled the country to make Australia’s Child Health CheckPoint study a reality, supported by a team of more than 100 staff/students, 26 Senior Investigators, and world-class spaces generously offered by venues nationally including Charles Perkins. The study involved collecting cutting-edge physical and biological measures on 1,874 parent-child dyads. When paired with a decade of data collected biennially since the children were born, CheckPoint has created a unique resource for researchers globally.

In the context of constant technological advances and the ever-changing research landscape of “bigger, faster, better”, Kate’s presentation will share her CheckPoint journey in the hope of informing future cohort study design.

Her presentation will cover:
1) the five key principles that allowed the delivery of such a grand project in record time and on a tight budget;
2) hot-off-the-press data examining obesity, diet, physical activity and cardiovascular health in the population-derived sample; and
3) a summary of the available data that all researchers will be able to access publicly in 2018, as well as the biological samples available upon request.

About the speaker
Dr Kate Lycett is the NHMRC Early Career and National Heart Foundation Fellow at Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, Melbourne, Australia. Kate is an early career researcher with interests in childhood obesity, cardiovascular health, mental health and epidemiology. Since completing her PhD in Paediatrics, she has taken a lead role in Australia’s Child Health CheckPoint study, a one-off physical and biomarkers module to the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children’s Birth cohort.
