Elsevier Clinics Collections
Obesity: A Multidisciplinary Approach draws from Elsevier's robust Clinics Review Articles database to provide multidisciplinary teams - including general practitioners, endocrinologists, paediatricians, gastroenterologists, nurses, and other healthcare professionals - with insights and practical clinical advice on this highly prevalent disease and its comorbidities.
It guides readers on how to apply current primary research findings on obesity to everyday practice, helping them to overcome challenges and complications, keep up with new and improved treatment methods, and improve patient outcomes.
- Areas of focus include obesity and secondary disorders, paediatric obesity, metabolic issues, dietary approaches, surgical options, and special considerations.
- Each article begins with keywords and key points for immediate access to the most critical information.
- Articles are presented in an easy-to-digest and concisely worded format.
"This is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary presentation of the pathophysiology, treatment options, types and variety of complications that primary care clinicians and specialists will encounter in patients in their daily practice of medicine. The breadth of the information makes the monograph valuable for nurses and other medical professionals as well, giving them a broader picture than they may have gotten previously."
"The majority of the chapters are articles published from 2012 through 2014. The beginning articles focus on the specific issue of obesity in children. Other articles cover the association of obesity and secondary disorders such as non-alcoholic fatty liver, gastroesophageal reflux, sleep disorders, asthma, and diabetic kidney disease. Interesting articles focus on the association of obesity and chronic hepatitis C and insulin-like growth hormones. The treatment section discusses dietary and surgical management with minimal mention of any pharmacological treatments. In line with the multidisciplinary approach, on article discusses the potential role of sports psychology in the obesity epidemic."
"This is a provocative addition to a primary care clinician's library, providing both an update perspective and a reference." - Vincent F Carr DO MSA FACC FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences) for Doody’s Review Service
