Using the modules
The modules in this series correspond with 3 key stages of providing quality care to patients: diagnosing obesity, discussing weight, and treating obesity.
The Diagnose modules use hypothetical patients to demonstrate appropriate HCP-patient interactions as well as learning modules to illustrate proper documentation procedures.
The Discuss modules provide tools for building a long-term weight-management plan with patients that includes physical activity, healthy eating, and strategies for sustaining weight loss.
The Treat modules provide guidance on tailoring a weight-management plan to each individual patient’s needs, taking into account their insurance status, medical history, and cognitive or behavioral patterns.
