New, Accredited Case Study Modules for Obesity Management


CON, in collaboration with our obesity society affiliates and mdBriefCase, has been working to expand resources and case studies available to primary care clinicians on obesity management. This international initiative has resulted in accredited learning, along with valuable publications and resources closely aligned with the 5As of Obesity Management which are now available in Canada, Brazil, Italy, Denmark, Finland and Norway.

The additional modules are available for free using the links below. (If you don’t already have an account, you will be asked to register but registration is free!)
