The course "Obesity Toolbox" aims to enhance your comprehension of the intricacies surrounding the management of overweight individuals and equip you with the knowledge to aid patients by starting a considerate and compassionate dialogue about their weight and associated lifestyle concerns.
Despite the growing acknowledgment of patient-centered care in a clinical context, its application in the management of obesity remains limited. Effectively communicating with patients who are affected by obesity demands establishing a positive relationship and providing patient education while showing respect. Moreover, physicians' frustration with the lack of success in treating obesity can unconsciously result in biased and unfavorable interactions with patients.
As a healthcare provider, you hold a crucial and distinct responsibility to initiate discussions about obesity, conduct preliminary evaluations, and guide patients towards the most suitable treatment options. By adopting a patient-centered approach in the management of obesity, healthcare providers can improve patients' health-related self-efficacy, treatment compliance, satisfaction, and outcomes, including weight loss. Therefore, directing the focus of obesity treatment towards the healthcare provider can lead to more positive patient outcomes.
The Obesity Toolbox course is designed to increase your awareness about the complexities of excess weight management and empowers you to provide support to patients by initiating a sensitive and empathetic conversation about their weight and related lifestyle issues.
The course employs a tutor-led video-based learning approach, emulating a traditional classroom experience that empowers learners to apply the concepts they acquire confidently. Additionally, we offer supplementary resources, such as downloadable transcripts and toolkits, that participants can utilize during their face-to-face interactions with patients. As an added benefit, the course includes a webinar by Joseph Nadglowski, the President and CEO of the Obesity Action Coalition and the College of Contemporary Health, who will share his zeal to improve access to obesity treatments and eradicate weight bias.
