Clinical Practice Guideline Webinar Series 2020-09-15T18:43:26-04:00

Adult Obesity Guidelines Webinar Series

Obesity Canada, the University of Alberta’s Office of Lifelong Learning and the authors of the new Canadian Adult Obesity Clinical Practice Guidelines are launching an interactive webinar series beginning August 11th.

Developed by Obesity Canada and the Canadian Association of Bariatric Physicians and Surgeons, the new CPGs were authored by more than 60 Canadian health professionals, researchers and individuals living with obesity. A summary of the recommendations will be published online in the Canadian Medical Association Journal August 4th, and 19 in-depth chapters will be made available simultaneously on the Obesity Canada website.

The Adult Obesity Guidelines: What’s New? webinar series will connect you with chapter authors discussing key concepts in obesity care, with live Q&A. Each of the six installments will be streamed live; choose either the daytime or evening stream, and access all six for only $50.

*If registered, you will receive links to all recordings in the series.

*Even if you purchase the webinar series after the webinar date, you will receive a link to the recordings.

Learning objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Provide obesity chronic disease management in a planned, proactive manner
  2. Support patients to understand how their root causes, comorbidities and personal context are related to their obesity management
  3. List, review and select therapeutic approaches (behavioural, medical, surgical) to help patients develop personalized plans to manage their obesity as a chronic disease.

Although this is not an accredited webinar series, a certificate of attendance will be provided to registrants upon the completion of the 6 part series.
