With support from the National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK)
under NIH grant #2R44DK091144-01A1 we have developed CME-based skills training for primary care professionals on
the topic of adult obesity. The Impact Obesity program provides the latest information, research and resources on adult obesity
and practical ways physicians can help manage it. This information is presented using Clinical Tool’s Learning Ecosystem, a set
of interactive and case-based learning elements designed to engage and excite the reader with interactive features throughout
the courses. The Clinical Tools Learning Ecosystem is designed to allow users to interact with the course content using different
assessment varieties to reinforce important information. Poll and short answer questions allow users to compare their answers to
other respondents. Within each module, the user is introduced to various patient case examples. Complete with medical histories,
weight histories and other general information, these case scenarios help illustrate the module’s learning objectives by applying the
concepts in a simulated, interactive experience. Example patient/provider dialogues appear throughout each case and help to illustrate
common scenarios and potential pitfalls that healthcare providers may encounter while speaking with their patients regarding weight
management. Resources provide additional information and easy-to-use tools that providers can give to their patients. Protocol icons
found throughout this program mark clinical protocol steps that help to guide user’s in their practice. We are currently completing a
robust evaluation of the Impact Obesity curriculum on confidence, competence and performance outcomes.
