COVID is challenging many, including your Patients with Obesity

Creating Opportunities for Productive Clinician-Patient Interactions During a Pandemic

CAFP is offering three accredited activities that focus on creating opportunities for productive clinician-patient interactions during this pandemic. Take advantage of the practical advice, tools and resources to help your patients with obesity – including the opportunity to practice what you’ve learned with a Standardize Patient and receive immediate feedback!

Activity One: Helping Your Patients Seeking Obesity Treatment: Coping with Negative Thoughts

https://familydocs.realcme.com/learner/course/2777

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will be able to recognize negative thoughts by patients seeking obesity treatment.
  2. Participants will learn how to use reframing reflections to help patients manage negative self-talk.
  3. Participants will learn to use CBT strategy for addressing negative thoughts by patients seeking obesity treatment.
  4. Participants will have increased knowledge regarding obesity's impact on diabetes

Activity Two: Helping Your Patients Seeking Obesity Treatment: Effective Communication Strategies that Make a Difference

https://familydocs.realcme.com/learner/course/2778

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will learn and recognize the key components of shared decision-making encounters for patients seeking obesity treatment.
  2. Participants will identify best practices for risk communication when deliberating treatment options with patients seeking obesity treatment.
  3. Participants will learn the definition of decisional conflict and how to assess it.
  4. Participants will have increased knowledge regarding obesity's impact on CVD

After participating in one or both of these two half-hour activities, learners will be invited to participate in a short “tele-session” with a standardized patient to “practice” your communication skills.

Activity Three: Let’s Practice Quality Care: Interacting with Your Patient with Obesity

The goal of this activity is to help patients with overweight and obesity develop a shared decision-making relationship with their care team.

This initiative also offers a great activity for your patients. We hope you take advantage of sharing this activity with the appropriate patients.

Activity Four: (Patient Education Activity): Rethinking Negative Thoughts for People Seeking Weight Loss Treatment: A Patient Coach Experience
