Optimal care of bariatric surgery patients vital for long-term health and well-being
Date:4/11/2012

New Rochelle, NY, April 11, 2012 -- Approximately 200,000 people in the U.S. have bariatric surgery each year as a means to achieve significant weight loss. Recent reports indicating that bariatric surgery is more effective in treating people with type 2 diabetes than medication alone is likely to make this procedure even more popular. Due to excessive weight, diabetes, and other comorbid conditions, healthcare providers caring for bariatric surgical patients in both the pre- and postoperative period require a high level of skill and knowledge in order to optimize patient outcomes, according to Bariatric Nursing and Surgical Patient Care (http://www.liebertpub.com/bar), a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.

"Now more than ever, it is important that the care of patients undergoing bariatric surgical procedures be consistent with current evidence and best practices," says Editor-in-Chief Kristin L. Seidl, PhD, RN, Director of Outcomes for Nursing and Patient Care Services, University of Maryland Medical Center. "As clinical research advances and the knowledge base expands, healthcare providers will be challenged to continuously integrate new knowledge into practice. Bariatric Nursing and Surgical Patient Care is committed to disseminating the most up-to-date information available in order to assist all members of the multidisciplinary team."
