Weight Management Counseling for New Nurse Practitioners

May 19, 2021

Weight management counseling in primary care is such an important skill, and it’s truly the foundation that patients need before we can start addressing weight loss medications.

In this week’s video, I’m covering my approach to weight management counseling in primary care, which will hopefully help you feel more confident in your visits.

Weight Management Counseling in Primary Care

I cover:

✅ How to talk to patients, including actual easy scripted phrases to use so you get the information you need and they feel supported

✅ Special considerations with using the BMI calculator (who knew??)

✅ One key to actually move the needle forward in weight management conversations

✅ The hidden beliefs we need to address with patients that will set them up for success

✅ The mindset shift that will help you and your patients set realistic expectations and plans of care so they reach their goals
