New Survey Reveals that Communication Breakdown Between Physicians and Patients Hinders Weight Loss Efforts

d by obesity," said Joe Nadglowski, president and CEO of the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC), a national non-profit organization dedicated to giving a voice to those affected by obesity. "The survey results provide tangible evidence supporting what we've been hearing from patients and physicians for years.  We need to educate patients to have the conversation about their weight and ask the right questions so they leave the doctor's office feeling empowered to take steps toward managing their weight. We also need to encourage physicians to facilitate the weight discussion with their patients – as it is often a difficult topic to discuss."

Expert Panel to Convene:
In an effort to initiate conversations about weight management, Eisai will convene a multidisciplinary panel of experts from a variety of medical, psychological/behavioral and patient-focused organizations in early 2014 to review the survey findings along with related literature. Based on this review, the group will develop an action plan outlining the tools and resources needed by physicians and patients to foster better dialogue about weight management in the clinical setting.

"In this last year alone, we've seen tremendous strides made in the way society talks and thinks about obesity. There's been recognition of obesity as a disease and advances in medicine to help those struggling with obesity. However, the conversations happening in the exam room have yet to catch up," says Francesca Dea, executive director of The Obesity Society (TOS), a professional organization dedicated to the study of obesity.  "Whether the root cause here is a lack of understanding, different personalities, the psychology of having these uncomfortable conversations or a combination of factors, the panel's goal will help make physician-patient conversations more productive and ultimately help to improve the care provided to patients."
