The Integrated Health Multidisciplinary Care Committee of the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) has sent the first part of the survey to its members.
We would like to invite you to participate in a survey that will explore the roles and responsibilities fulfilled by the professionals who provide essential healthcare services to our bariatric surgery patients. Ultimately, we hope to increase awareness of the comprehensive, coordinated, and integrated nature of bariatric healthcare. Our discipline-specific surveys are relatively brief and include disciplines in the areas of nursing, exercise, nutrition, obesity medicine, surgery and behavioral health. Providers should on average complete their surveys in 10 to 20 minutes. We will gratefully be asking practice managers to distribute and coordinate the surveys for their respective providers.
