State-of-the-Art Obesity Management in the Primary Care Setting

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Access our robust online slide library covering the management of obesity in the primary care setting. Expert faculty in weight management developed content related to epidemiology, pathophysiology, and complications of obesity; screening and diagnosis; patient counseling; case studies; nonpharmacologic therapies; and pharmacologic therapies. Choose your topic interests and customize your own slide deck to broaden your knowledge and improve the care and outcomes of patients with obesity.

Obesity is not a lifestyle choice or a failure of willpower. It is a chronic disease, and it affects more than 40% of adults in the US. Do you wonder…
• How to talk to patients about their weight?
• When and how to incorporate pharmacologic therapies within individualized management plans for patients with obesity?
• Why patients with obesity often struggle with maintaining weight loss?
