Assessment

A comprehensive assessment of the individual patient is necessary before beginning a treatment plan. Here, you will find resources to guide your assessment of a patient’s readiness to begin obesity treatment, in addition to medical, dietary and psychological evaluation tools. The resources contained here include AGA clinical practice products and other tools featured in the POWER paper, patient information materials and additional resources which have been used and recommended by the authors of the POWER paper.

The resources and references in this online toolkit include AGA clinical practice products, patient information materials and other AGA documents. There are additional resources (found under “Additional Resources”) which have been used and recommended by the authors of the POWER white paper, but are not AGA products, and have not been endorsed by AGA.
