Needs Analysis of Primary Care Physicians and Other Providers in Terms of Obesity Training

Improving clinical skills related to obesity assessment and intervention in primary care can have a dramatic effect on the obesity epidemic. We are creating a web-based training program for primary care providers on the evaluation and treatment of patients with obesity or overweight or at risk for obesity or overweight. The interactive case-based learning experience strives to alter practice behavior and improve clinical decision making via patient case scenarios.
