Weight Loss Medications for New Nurse Practitioners (Part 2)

Prescribing weight loss medications in primary care is SUCH a common challenge for new nurse practitioners. It feels like there are so many options and things to keep track of.

This week’s video is a follow-up video from last week’s video about weight management counseling-- all about weight loss medications in primary care.

Goal setting and what to expect with patients

Monitoring of patients and how often to have them come back to clinic
