Wisconsin Physical/Occupational Therapist Symposium on Pediatric Chronic Pain and Obesity. Treating Children and Teens with Obesity: What do Physical/Occupational Therapists Need to Know?

Saturday, September 19, 2020
8:00 AM to 1:00 PM


Details

Pediatric PTs/OTs often encounter patients struggling with overweight and obesity, however no applied training on this topic exists for clinicians.

Evidence-based content will include a comprehensive overview on: 1) the current state of pediatric obesity; 2) systemic effects and risk factors of pediatric obesity, including the impact on body systems and psychosocial health; 3) effective vs. ineffective weight-based conversations, as well as ethical dilemmas that can arise in the clinic.

A primary focus of the learning event will be to teach learners motivational interviewing techniques; skills that are key to sensitive clinical conversations.

 

Case examples, skill building and question/answer formats will be used. The overall goal of this event is to provide PTs/OTs with both information and skills that will translate into more thoughtful patient care.
