Post Bariatric Care and Obesity Management

Project ECHO® OBN
Update Your Knowledge on Post Bariatric Care and Obesity Management

The Ontario Bariatric Network (OBN) is launching an exciting new initiative Project ECHO™ OBN that partners primary care providers with a multi-disciplinary team of specialists from the Bariatric Centres of Excellence (BCOE) to share best practices on bariatric care and obesity management.

This series of 6 sessions hosted by The Ottawa Hospital begin on October 2, 2019 and is open to physicians, residents and medical students, nurse practitioners and allied health professionals working in primary care.  There is no cost to attend.

Learn about:

  • Changing practices in the surgical and medical management of patients with obesity
  • BCOE and primary care collaboration to implement the Shared Care Model
  • Obesity-related co-morbidities and treatment options
  • Evidence-based approaches to effectively manage patient complications

Managing the care of post-bariatric surgery patients can be complex.  Register soon to take advantage of this no-cost learning opportunity!
