The module is intended to help primary care providers better understand the impact of obesity on patients; explains measures for assessing and monitoring obesity in adults, youth, and children; and provides an overview of behavioural and pharmacotherapeutic interventions available to patients.  This Self-Learning program has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada for 1 Mainpro+® credit.
