Shared Medical Appointments

SMAs are a new and revolutionary way of managing chronic disease in primary care.  They involve a doctor, a facilitator (who directs the 60-90 minute sessions and manages group dynamics) and 6-12 patients at a time.  If you’re frustrated with the limitations of 1:1 consulting, SMAs are for you – and for your patients.

ASLM will be conducting Certified SMA Facilitator training from time to time – make sure we have your contact details so we can keep you informed!

What is Lifestyle medicine?

Lifestyle medicine bridges the gap between health promotion and conventional medicine. It involves a range of health professionals working as a team to prevent, manage and treat the ~70% of modern health problems which have a lifestyle-based cause.


Lifestyle Medicine is best practice for practitioners supporting Australians and New Zealanders in the prevention, management and treatment of chronic, multiple and often ‘lifestyle’-related conditions.


Become an ASLM member to get access to the latest research and information, participate in an active, supportive community of health professionals focused on prevention and improved clinical outcomes and help support the growth of Lifestyle Medicine.
