The Optimal Weight for Life (OWL) program was developed to help children and young people who are currently overweight.
The goal of the program is to help children, young people and their families to make lasting changes to support them in reaching their optimal weight and healthier lifestyle.
The program is led by nurse practioners from NursePrac Australia, who have many years of experience working in children's health.
Medicare covers the cost of the OWL Program and there is no need for a medical referral.
The OWL program includes:
Detailed health assessment by a paediatric nurse practitioner and a paediatrician
Treatment plan personalised for the child/young person and family
Health and wellness education
Follow-up clinic visits to help keep on track
The OWL Program is supported by NursePrac Australia, the City of Cockburn, Fiona Stanley Hospital and Cockburn Integrated Health.
