The Canadian Task Force on Preventative Health Care's Guidelines on Obesity Prevention and Management in Adults and Children in Primary Care

      New guidelines on child and adult obesity prevention and management in primary care, released by the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care (CTFPHC), are of great interest to the Canadian Obesity Network. These guidelines differ from many others in the obesity field, because of the focus, the methods used to review and interpret the evidence, as well as the knowledge translation approaches used to develop and usability test patient and provider tools for practice. The first part of the workshop will provide an overview of the various methods used by the CTFPHC including the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE). The second part of the session will be centered on how to interpret and implement both the child and adult obesity recommendations. Scenarios will be used to showcase how the guidelines can inform primary care practice. The workshop will provide an informal opportunity to have the obesity community review and offer advice on the how the guidelines can contribute to further development and implementation of obesity prevention and management services in the Canadian health care system.
