Obesity, overweight and hospitalisation: identifying targets for interventions to prevent adverse health outcomes

 

Overview

The Obesity, overweight and hospitalisation: identifying targets for interventions to prevent adverse health outcomes project aimed to investigate how obesity affects the risk of hospital admission in Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

The project examined the burden of hospital use, and adverse hospital outcomes associated with overweight and obesity by collecting data on the nature of the hospitalisation, the cost, and whether specific groups are at a higher risk of obesity-related hospitalisation.

The Obesity, overweight and hospitalisation: identifying targets for interventions to prevent adverse health outcomes project will help inform targets for interventions to prevent adverse health outcomes, and reduce obesity-related hospitalisation.

This project was funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC).
