Quality in Obesity Treatment
by John M. Morton
This book reviews quality definition, measurement, improvement, value, and accountability for obesity management. The interplay between quality, cost, access and satisfaction is fully depicted with a goal toward not only fulfilling current standards but also anticipating future needs. A thorough inventory of current best practices in all aspects of obesity care is cataloged with a gap analysis also employed for potential areas of improvement to be road mapped. All chapters are written by experts in their fields and include the most up-to-date scientific and clinical information, take home messages, and questions towards following the requirements of quality certification in obesity management. Quality in Obesity Treatment provides a comprehensive, contemporary review of this field and serves as a valuable resource for Bariatric Surgeons, Primary Care Physicians, Policy Makers, Insurance Administrators, Bariatricians, and any medical specialty interested in obesity quality management with likely candidates coming from GI, endocrinology, cardiology, sleep medicine and orthopedics.
