Building an Obesity Treatment Plan: Advanced Cases – Virtual

Building an Obesity Treatment Plan: Advanced Cases – Virtual

Date: October 7-8, 2020
Accreditation: 12.5 CME/CE and 12.5 Medical Knowledge MOC Points (ABIM)
Schedule: Wednesday, Oct. 7 – 12:30-5:45 PM EDT
Thursday, Oct. 8 – 10:00-6:45 PM EDT

Using the Obesity Medicine Association’s four pillars of clinical obesity treatment, learn how to develop obesity treatment plans for patients with complex adiposity-related diseases. This case-based course is intended to build upon the core concepts of obesity medicine and help you gain the skills to implement more advanced techniques in your practice. You’ll use real-life cases to practice building individualized treatment plans from start to finish.

Why Attend?

  • Learn to manage four common adiposity-related diseases: type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease and congestive heart failure, lipedema, and osteoarthritis of the knee
  • Explore the impacts of obesity treatment on each of these associated diseases
  • Find out what key components to look for in the evaluation including medical history, physical exam, and laboratory results
  • Learn how to identify and adjust any concurrent medications to support weight management
  • Prioritize treatment approaches for each adiposity-related disease based on what you find during the initial evaluation
  • Examine the root causes of each associated disease and how to effectively treat both the obesity-related disease and the obesity
  • Understand how best to communicate and collaborate with other providers on the patient’s healthcare team
  • Know when to refer to a disease specialist

Schedule on Wednesday, Oct. 7
