Joining the Dots for the Management of Clinically Severe Obesity

  • : Online

At its annual meeting in June 2013, the American Medical Association adopted a policy that recognised obesity as “a disease requiring a range of medical interventions to advance… prevention and management”.1

On the first anniversary of this decision, with the firm support of relevant colleges and associations, the American Medical Association went further by adopting a policy that supported patient access to the full spectrum of evidence-based obesity interventions, including behavioural, pharmaceutical, psychological, nutritional, pharmacological and surgical options.2
