Build Your Own Case Study | Obesity: Treating the Whole Patient

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Activity Description
Obesity is a chronic, progressive, relapsing disease that impacts health and quality of life. In individuals with obesity, there are many contributors to its development and persistence, including lifestyle, social, and economic factors. If left untreated, obesity can be a primary driver of serious health consequences. By treating obesity first, complications arising from obesity may improve or resolve. Given the severity of the disease, there is a need for clinicians in primary and specialty care settings to diagnose and treat obesity so that patients can receive the most appropriate treatment and care. Evidence-based treatment options, including anti-obesity medications, are emerging for adults and children. In this immersive virtual Build Your Own Case Study | Obesity: Treating the Whole Patient, navigate through your toughest clinical challenges while leading experts reinforce essential topics, such as:

- Medical consequences and comorbidities of obesity
- Application of adiposity measures, including BMI and waist circumference
- Latest clinical evidence of new and emerging anti-obesity medications
- Best practices in shared decision-making and starting the conversation with your patients

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Identify common medical consequences and comorbidities of the chronic primary disease of obesity.
- Assess factors that lead to a diagnosis of obesity, including BMI and waist circumference, for patients who may have overweight/obesity.
- Evaluate the safety and efficacy of the most recently approved and emerging AOMs.
- Utilize shared decision making when discussing effective weight loss options, including new and emerging pharmacotherapies
