With two-thirds of the population overweight or obese, it is
essential for clinicians to become more competent in the
care of patients with these conditions. This course, designed
for generalist and specialist physicians, nurses and nurse
practitioners, pharmacists, physician assistants, dieticians,
psychologists and all other health professionals who provide
quality care to the obese and refer to other obesity specialistsm
will provide a focused, evidence-based discussion of current
strategies for the management of obesity. The course will feature
a nationally-recognized multidisciplinary faculty, a detailed
syllabus, and substantial time for questions and discussion.
The purpose of this course is to increase competence and
improve clinical practice in the care of patients with obesity. We
specifi cally anticipate improvements in skills and strategies:
to evaluate overweight and obese patients for metabolic
syndrome, diabetes, and other health complications of obesity;
to assess social and psychological factors which may
contribute to obesity;
to treat all populations of patients with obesity including
children, and adults;
to select and implement state-of-the-art diets and exercise
programs for weight loss and weight maintenance;
to use medications for weight loss and monitoring them for
effi cacy and side effects;
to select patients for bariatric surgery and advise them as to the
risks and benefi ts;
to recommend current surgical approaches for obesity and
better perform pre-operative an post-operative care;
to counsel patients about the potential role for bariatric surgery
in the care of patients with complex medical illnesses including
diabetes, liver disease, and kidney failure.
