Abstract
At the Medical Department, Telemark Central Hospital, a project has been going on for five years now to evaluate consultations in lifestyle groups in preference to individual consultations for persons with dyslipidemia. 363 persons were recruited to participate in a series of 5 group consultations at intervals of 3 months, each session to last for 2 hours. Altogether 1469 consultations were of this type. After the first session 79% said they preferred lifestyle group consultations, rather than spending their share of the allotted time on personal consultations, and after the fifth session 81%. The concept has been extended to include patients with chronic disease (asthma and chronic inflammatory bowel disease), with the principal aim of improving the patients' understanding of their disease, and showing them how to control it themselves. The project has attracted much attention, and a consultant in preventive medicine has recently been appointed to the staff. We think it important in terms of impact that the initiative to establish local expertise in preventive medicine emerged from a department that deals with emergency admissions due to lifestyle-related diseases.
