Abstract:
Introduction: In 1998 the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) released the Clinical Guidelines on the Identification, Evaluation, and Treatment of Overweight and Obesity in Adults: Evidence Report due to the prevalence in the United States. Research shows that these individuals are at increased risk for many diseases and health conditions. Study Question: Do We Follow the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute clinical guidelines on the identification, evaluation and treatment of overweight and obesity? Hypothesis: The management practice patterns of cardiovascular health care providers in our setting will differ from those identified by the NHLBI Clinical Guidelines for Overweight and Obesity in Adults. Materials and Methods: A convenience sample of 61 cardiovascular health care providers participated in a survey designed to answer our question related to management practices of health care providers in 3 different clinic areas (cardiology, TCV and Sub-specialty). Results & Outcomes: The majority of providers in ambulatory heart and vascular clinics are not familiar with the NHLBI Guidelines. There are differences by clinic in all of the areas of management . Providers in the TCV tend to address weight management and interventions less often. The main barrier in the TCV perception is that addressing these issues is not their role. Discussion & Implications for Practice: A uniform measure of obesity is needed in ambulatory heart and vascular center. Education about NHLBI guidelines is needed across all clinics. A focus on areas on weight management would be useful.
