2.  Differentiate between the different types of bariatric procedures and be able to choose which best fits the patient;
3.  Understand the role of medically managed weight loss in pre- and post-operative weight management;
4.  Understand and assess the role of preoperative diet/lifestyle education for the patients and effect on long term outcomes;
5.  Identify and describe the effects of bariatric surgery on obesity related comorbidities;
6.  Understand the health related impacts of obesity;
7.  Identify the psychological factors of pre and post-operative weight management;
8.  Understand access to care through Healthcare Disparities. 

Description

With the continued prevalence of obesity, patients continue seeking surgical and non-surgical approaches to help with weight loss and the resolution of comorbidities. For physicians, allied health professionals and nurses to provide the high quality of care, they must keep up with the current medical innovations and changes to pre- and post-operative care. The goal of this course is to educate learners on research, outcomes, new and upcoming procedures through
didactics, patient panels and breakout sessions.
