Obesity Practice Guide

The Practice guide on Obesity and Weight management, Education and Resources (POWER) white paper provides physicians with a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary process to guide and personalize innovative obesity care for safe and effective weight management.

Instead of a linear care pathway, the POWER program care cycle is circular in order to represent the fact that obesity is a chronic disease that requires a lifelong multidisciplinary approach for effective, long-term therapy. Each portion of the circle represents a different step in the continued, comprehensive approach to obesity treatment.
