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.
The Prevention in Hand (PiH) website has an attractive new interface that is also highly functional and easy to navigate.
Health care professionals can access the information individually or with their patients to review current chronic disease information, professional guidelines, e-Learning modules, online assessments, and wellness and healthy lifestyle management tools. Family doctors who complete the eLearning modules can earn Mainpro+® credits.
