Today’s Dietitian and Becky Dorner & Associates, two trusted names in continuing education, are partnering to provide nutrition professionals with a comprehensive selection of continuing education opportunities to satisfy a multitude of learning needs and styles.

An astonishing 67% of Americans are overweight or obese. Correlate this statistic with the rapidly aging population in the U.S., and the issue of aging and obesity presents a multitude of challenges for health care providers. Obese individuals have the highest risk for developing conditions that often reduce mobility and quality of life, complicate care, and challenge providers to develop unique approaches. The Obesity Challenge: Weight Management in Older Adults manual provides essential tools and knowledge to meet the evolving needs of this growing population.

The Obesity Challenge includes information on obesity trends, health issues, nutritional needs calculations, sample screening, assessment and care plan clinical documentation forms, and almost 90 fabulous copy ready educational handouts you can use with your clients, patients, and residents! It has everything you need to set up inpatient and outpatient programs for older adults no matter what setting you are in-- hospital based systems, long term care or private practice.

Includes a CD-Rom of almost 90 pages of full color, copy ready educational materials with lessons for healthy eating and lifestyle suggestions to help your clients, patients, and residents reach their individualized weight loss goals.

"The Obesity Challenge manual was instrumental in providing our facility with a solid framework for restructuring our Bariatric Weight Loss Program in an effort to better meet our participant needs as well as the requirements of our state surveyors. It contains a wealth of information based on the latest research findings in Bariatric Practice and can be utilized as a "how-to" guideline when establishing a structured Bariatric program in a health care facility. The nutrition care tools provided within the contents of this manual are excellent, user-friendly and comprehensive and will save countless hours in program development and operation. We would highly recommend this manual to any practitioner struggling with meeting the nutrition care needs of this challenging population. Kudos to Becky and her group for their exceptional work in helping to establish Bariatric nutrition care standards!"

--Amy S. Rizzo, MS, RD, LD; Lynne Kotte, RD, LD, Director of Bariatric Services, Hickory Ridge Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Akron, Ohio
