Diet! Diet! Who’s Got the Best Diet? - Frankly Speaking EP 64

71% of adults in the United States are overweight or obese. To tackle this problem, primary care providers must stay up to date on the best evidence for addressing overweight and obese status in their patients. The DIETFITS Randomized Clinical Trial offers direction for nutritional advice in this important and serious public health concern. Guest: Kenneth Peterson, PhD, FNP-BC

71% of adults in the United States are overweight or obese. The impact the medical community is making on reducing high rates of overweight and obesity is less than optimal. Primary care providers (PCPs) bear witness to this staggering statistic on a daily basis and are in a unique position to address this problem. To tackle this problem PCPs must be up to date on best evidence for addressing overweight and obese status in their patients. What seems simple might not be the case. As clinical evidence for best practice in treating overweight and obese patients grows, which approach is considered best. With limited time for patient encounters and higher patient volumes, what health counseling, patient education or behavioral health strategies will work best. With a variety of diets available for patients to choose, which one is preferred. The DIETFITS Randomized Clinical Trial offers direction for nutritional advice in this important and serious public health concern.

FAQ for Current Approaches to Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation

Failure to prescribe anticoagulation to prevent stroke in high-risk atrial fibrillation (AF) patients is a persistent and pervasive problem. Despite a multitude of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines, and five effective oral anticoagulants for stroke prevention, at least 30% of these patients remain unprotected. This talk will focus on understanding the root causes of the failure to prevent stroke crisis. The role of antithrombotic therapy, in particular direct oral anticoagulants, will be reviewed. Strategies for implementation of best practices for stoke prevention in AF will be highlighted.Guest: Gregory Piazza, MD, MS
