What Do Clinicians Need To Know To Better Manage Obesity?

sharma-obesity-doctor-kidGiven that the vast majority of clinicians have learnt little about managing obesity in their professional training (and even that may be an overstatement), one of the biggest challenges today is to train health professionals to help their patients better manage their obesity.

Now the Canadian Obesity Network has partnered with mdBriefcase, the largest provider of online continuing medical education for health professionals in Canada, to created online courses on obesity management.

In order to ensure that these courses meet the needs of the various groups of health professionals, the Canadian Obesity Network is now conducting a survey aimed at health professionals working in Canada.

What’s in it for you?

As a small token of appreciation, mdBriefcase is offering the 1st, 25th, 50th, 75th and 100th participant a $25 Starbucks or Petro Canada gift card!

What will happen with the information that is collected?

Answers will be collected and analyzed by the Canadian Obesity Network and mdBriefCase. This data will be kept secure and confidential and used for education development planning. Anonymised data will be used by the Canadian Obesity Network and mdBriefCase in undertaking the analysis and in preparing any published reports of the survey.
