This module, which is composed of 10 clinically-rich questions, discusses current approaches to the management of obesity. There has been a considerable emphasis placed on understanding the regulation of appetite and, in consequence, there is a growing pharmaceutical armamentarium of use in weight management. This module discusses the evidence relating to weight management, including bariatric surgical intervention.
