In the healthcare industry, managing obesity has become a crucial component of providing high-quality patient care. Successful management of obesity depends on both having a positive outlook toward patients and possessing the necessary clinical skills to develop a treatment plan. Unfortunately, due to time constraints and the complexity of obesity, weight management strategies often fail to achieve the desired outcomes.

This course is designed to equip nurses with the knowledge and skills to safely and effectively integrate weight management strategies into their patients’ treatment plans. Furthermore, the increasing prevalence of severe obesity highlights the growing need for nursing care for patients who have undergone bariatric procedures.

The Obesity Essentials course aims to help nurses address the challenges of obesity by providing them with a thorough understanding of the multiple life-threatening comorbidities and complications associated with this condition. It recognizes that managing obesity requires customized and targeted interventions that account for the unique needs of each patient. Therefore, the course offers tailored solutions that involve dietary adjustments, behavior modification, and increased physical activity to help nurses effectively manage obesity in their patients.

Obesity Essentials Course for Nurses effectively addresses these challenges through online audiovisual aids, virtual instructor-led classes, and downloadable learning material that allow you to study around your work schedule and cultivate a better understanding of obesity & weight loss to help nurture nurses.
