This virtually live activity is an interactive exchange program with educational tools designed to help primary care providers use evidence-based strategies to manage obesity. The programming has been designed to help PCPs analyze the metabolic and hormonal pathways involved in the pathophysiology of obesity; select diagnostic strategies and interventions for obesity using guidelines and clinical data; distinguish between anti-obesity medications based on their safety, efficacy and mechanisms of action; and develop individualized treatment plans for patients with obesity using a shared decision-making approach. The instructional design is intended to facilitate a continuous networking exchange between obesity specialists and primary care providers that will enhance primary care physicians’ ability to manage patients with obesity, share knowledge, and create a higher level of confidence and ownership in treatment plans.
