New: The Obesity Prevention and Management e-learning module
The Obesity Prevention and Management e-learning module, developed by the Centre for Effective Practice (CEP), expands on the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care’s (CTFPHC) 2015 guidelines on the prevention and management of obesity in adults and in youth and children. 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.
