Course Overview

Weight loss does not have to be dramatic to be beneficial, just a 5% weight loss can have a profound impact on health. But do primary care providers know how to deliver obesity counseling? Do they know what works to achieve and maintain the 5% weight loss over time? In many cases the answer is no. This interprofessional course takes a step-by-step approach to setting up an Intensive Behavioral Therapy for Obesity CMS-approved program for those new to obesity counseling and for those with experience. It includes billing information, documentation requirements, forms for nutrition assessment, readiness to change, physical activity, and how to individualize a treatment program to achieve success. A 40+ page resource guide contains forms and educational handouts to ease the burden of developing a program from the ground up and how to work together as a team to improve outcomes.
