  • Use screening and diagnostic tools to effectively diagnose patients with obesity
  • Evaluate recent medical management for obesity and patient-centered treatment strategies
  • Create patient-centric interventions and overcome potential barriers to appropriate patient care

Statement of Need

Dannemiller staff has experience developing and implementing certified educational activities on obesity for multiple target audiences including family practitioners, endocrinologists, internists, diabetologists, physician assistants, registered nurses, and clinical pharmacists. Dannemiller staff has worked with nationally and internationally recognized experts in obesity and diabetes management. Their work has included development of content for activities that teach key skills in patient-centered dialogues between patients and physicians, as well as content for various live meetings and online case activities. Through evaluation of the Outcomes Studies Reports of these previously sponsored activities, which incorporated feedback from both attendees and experts, Dannemiller has carefully planned this CME activity to provide information that will enhance the attendee's ability to recognize, evaluate, and treat the patient with obesity.

Method of Participation

This program consists of lectures, enhanced by slide presentations, daily question and answer periods with ARS, and a link to the digital syllabus. The course sessions will provide an update of current pain management practices. This program offers ample opportunity for the participants to interact one-on-one with the faculty throughout the conference.
