5As of Obesity Management Framework Validated in Primary Care: Study
The results of a pilot study provide the first evidence that the implementation of CON-RCO's 5A's of Obesity Management promotes physician–patient communications, medical assessments for obesity and plans for follow-up care in a primary care setting. Findings are published in Clinical Obesity(online) and were presented at Obesity Week.
The 5A's of Obesity Management is a set of practical tools designed to guide primary care practitioners in obesity counseling and management. Recently, the 5A's framework was adapted for pediatric patients; a version focusing on healthy weight during pregnancy will be released soon.
