Evaluation and Management of Obesity

di Bessesen - Kushner  • 2002  • dettagli prodotto


Designed to be a concise, clinically useful guide to the evaluation and management of overweight and obese patients, this book will cover a range of topics that are relevant for primary care physicians, nurse practitioners/physician assistants, primary care residents, and medical students. The authors are all practicing MDs, dieticians, and PhDs who work with overweight and obese patients. They discuss practical issues that have been helpful for them when seeing these patients. It will provide focused, clinically useful information that the healthcare provider can immediately put to use in the office. The book is an outgrowth of a program called CORE (Centers for Obesity Research and Education); an educational initiative involving 8 leading obesity centers in the United States (Mayo Clinic, University of Colorado, Northwestern, Beth Israel Deaconess in Boston, University of Minnesota, UCLA, The Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge LA, and St. Lukes-Roosevelt Hospital in New York). CORE has been providing interactive educational programs to primary care physicians, nurse practitioners/physician assistants, and primary care residents. The content in the book comes from the authors' collective experiences providing this kind of education to the target audience. Table of Contents: 1. Defining the Scope of the Problem of Obesity2.
