End the Epidemic of Childhood Obesity...One Family at a Time

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

The number of overweight American children keeps growing at a rate that's hard to swallow. And so does the number of American children at risk for becoming overweight. Unless we stop the spread of this problem now, the long-term debilitating effects on today's children -and ultimately, on their children-will exhaust our healthcare resources.

Objectives:

  • Describe the obesity epidemic and its consequences.
  • Describe the guidelines of the American Medical Association's Expert Committee on the Assessment, Prevention, and Treatment of Child and Adolescent Overweight and Obesity.
  • Discuss the role of the nurse in preventing and managing childhood obesity.
  • Explain the staged approach to treatment of childhood obesity.
