Targeting disease burden and risk factors for promotion of men’s health

This Men's Health Week, Medcast and Healthy Male have teamed up to deliver an impactful webinar aimed at helping Australian clinicians to address the unique health challenges faced by men.  This webinar focuses on what strategies you can implement to support positive health behaviours among Australian males to reduce the burden of disease.

Australian males not only have a shorter life expectancy than females, but they also suffer from a higher burden of disease, measured in disability-adjusted life years. Men's health behaviours, often influenced by social norms that encourage risk-taking and self-reliance, contribute significantly to this disparity.  This webinar will provide you with the knowledge and tools to effectively engage male patients in health-promoting activities and preventative care.

Presentations and discussion from expert panelists will outline:

  • The burden of disease in Australian men aged 18-49

  • Risk factors for disease burden in Australian men aged 18-49

  • The health beliefs and behaviours of Australian men

  • Evidence-based advice about things that men can do to improve their health and prevent disease

Panelists’ insights can be used by health practitioners to opportunistically screen male patients and promote specific interventions for their health and wellbeing.

By attending this webinar, you will:

  • Equip yourself with the latest knowledge and strategies to reduce the burden of disease in Australian men

  • Learn practical approaches to engage male patients in preventive health measures and encourage positive health behaviours

  • Gain access to resources and insights from experts in the field, helping you provide better care and improve clinical outcomes for your patients.
