Event held in coop with sport england

 

Caused controversy around the term… Lifestyle disease

 

Promoting the event, the RCGP had said: ‘Covid-19 is a communicable virus but it is also a lifestyle disease. Obesity, diabetes and other lifestyle diseases are associated with poorer outcomes from infection.'

 

Caused controversy on twitter resulting in apology

 RCGP virtual conference titled ‘Covid-19: A lifestyle disease and the vital role GPs have in beating it’

 

Most risk factors identified by PHE are NON-MODIFIABLE - BAME increases risk of death by 10-50%, male gender, certain types of employment where homeworking/distancing difficult.

 

DM & HTN may also be risk factors, and life style is a factor here, but the link to COVID outcomes becomes stretched.

Comments…

No doubt good intentions

An opportunity to promote impotence of lifestyle and modification of lifestyles for health

Succumbed to the temptation to use COVID19 to draw attention to an event

Diseases where lifestyle is a factor and conditioning in general affects resilience to acute illness - so good point

Benefits of lifestyle medicine - what is it/ how can it be effective?

Wearables as a tool to help?

How much does wealth feed into this?

 

Publicity and optics, how should this be handled?

Does the RCGP need a PR department?
