All Lifescripts resources have been withdrawn from circulation, as they are no longer consistent with the latest evidence and guidelines on nutrition, physical activity, smoking and alcohol consumption. Future availability of the Lifescripts resources is currently being considered.
The Lifescripts initiative commenced in 2003-04 as part of the Government’s Focus on Prevention package. The Lifescripts initiative provided general practice with evidence-based tools and skills to help patients address the main lifestyle risk factors for chronic disease: smoking; poor nutrition; alcohol misuse; physical inactivity; and unhealthy weight. The initiative assisted with the provision of tailored advice to patients on modifying their lifestyle.
The Lifescripts resources aimed to make it easier for health professionals to help their patients to manage lifestyle-related risk factors by providing a framework for:
- raising and discussing lifestyle risk factors with patients
- advice in the form of a written script and associated patient education and
- referral to other providers to support healthy lifestyle.
