1 Flood* Control… it takes a village. (*whatever the inundation) The NECON Initiative as a Case Study in Collaborative Obesity Control David L. Katz, MD, MPH, FACPM, FACP Director, Prevention Research Center Yale University School of Medicine National Obesity Action Forum June 5, 2006

2 NECON, 101 New England Coalition for Health Promotion Established in 1984 Mission: to serve as an instrument for the development and enhancement of disease prevention and health promotion public policies in New England Has evolved into: a coalition of the New England state health departments, the region's schools of public health, and federal health agencies led by Region I of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, as well as medical societies, legislators, and representatives from industry, labor, and voluntary associations Funding sources include charitable trusts and foundations, private industry, voluntary sectors, and federal agencies Responsive to the New England Governors Conference

3 A cast of thousands. Or, at least… Mr. Bert Yaffe

4 A weighty charge- regional Task Force to develop a Strategic Plan for the Prevention and Control of Overweight and Obesity in New England chaired by Dr. Walter Willett, Harvard School of Public Health extensive and regionally representative working group of over 100 members

5 No problem!* Work began 2001; report issued *possible problem…stay tuned

6 Health Care Provider Working Group Focus on health care providers* One of several such working groups (media, schools, worksites, government, etc.) *hence, the name

7 Working Group Members Dr. Lon Sherman Dr. Jennifer Tremmel Carol Apovian; Joanne Bean; David Blackburn; Jill Braverman-Panza; Bob Breen; Diana Cullum- Dugan; Katherine McManus; Barry Pailet; Judy Phillips; Donald Swartz Serena Domolky

8 Key Concepts Informing Recommendations: Evidence is the best basis for recommendations, but is substantially deficient in this field. Professional judgment, expert opinion, and practical insights serve where evidence is lacking.

9 Health Care Provider Recommendations: Recognize the epidemic of obesity as a by-product of environmental change rather than individual failure. Provide non-judgmental and supportive weight control counseling to all patients. Recognize evidence of weight control modalities that have proven effectiveness, and recognize false product and program claims. Recognize and convey to patients the importance of lifelong approaches to weight control that are consistent with overall health promotion, rather than short-term diets that may fail to address salient aspects of nutritional health (e.g., abundant intake of fresh vegetables and fruit).

10 Health Care Provider Recommendations, cont. Providers should routinely counsel every patient about the benefits of weight control rather than waiting until a patient develops an obesity- related disease.* Providers should routinely monitor the BMI of both adults and children, in conjunction with non-judgmental feedback to patients regarding healthy weight. Clinicians should encourage an inter-generational, family-based approach to weight control that focuses on overall health promotion, not just weight. Health care providers should practice healthful eating and regular physical activity, for their own sake, as well as to serve as an example for patients as to what is realistic and achievable. *willful digression from: &

11 Policy Recommendations A regional clearinghouse, readily accessible to all providers, should be established that will gather and distribute information about nutrition, physical activity, weight-control counseling, clinic-based resources and innovations. Medical schools should prepare future providers for effective weight control counseling, including multi-cultural competency, by dedicating time in training curricula to this goal and offering practicing physicians opportunities for continuing medical education in this field. Weight control counseling should be a reimbursable clinical service.

21 From Here, to There, with the Right M/O M = maximizing motivation O = overcoming obstacles

22 Pressure Tactics




26 Assessing need in 2 loaded questions:

27 Katz DL. Prev Med. 2001;32:66-72

28 PSM Categories: Engaged in healthful behavior? No: go to question 2 Yes: (D) Interested? No, never (A) Yes (B) Maybe; recently lapsed (C) No; tried many times & failed (C)

29 The PSM Categories Category A (no/no) is unprepared for change Category B (no/yes) is on the brink of change Category D (yes) is in the midst of change Category C (no) is a temporary lapse or the futility and discouragement that come from multiple, unsuccessful attempts

30 Counseling Protocols HELP is on the way… A = low motivation B = motivated, but anticipating barriers C = relapse / burnout D = maintenance Focus on M Focus on O

31 Raising Motivation More than just encouragement…

32 Motivational Interviewing General Principles: 1) express empathy / acknowledge ambivalence 2) develop discrepancy 3) avoid argumentation 4) roll with resistance 5) support self-efficacy 6) encourage social contracting –Miller WR. Addict Behav. 1996; Rollnick S. Int J Obes. 1996

33 Decision Balance Lets patient talk themselves into behavior change Change emphasis of counseling as indicated by sources of patients ambivalence

34 Decision Balance for Physical Activity. Cells in the balance show some hypothetical entries. Increase Physical Activity Advantages Weight loss Better health More energy Disadvantages Hard work Limited time Unsure how Maintain Current Activity Level Advantages Easy Comfortable Avoid injury Avoid sweating Disadvantages No weight loss No health benefits Possible weight gain

35 Motivation can be the sound of one hand clapping…

36 Overcoming Resistance Acknowledge obstacles Convert obstacles into challenges/opportunities Identify/surmount universal barriers Identify/surmount patient-specific barriers

38 Methods Randomized allocation of hospitals in Yale- affiliated system Focus on 1 st year medical residents, ambulatory clinics Training of residents vs. usual instruction for controls Provision of materials to clinics

39 Proof (promise) in the Pudding (pedometers)… In a randomized trial of the PSM among 1 st year medical residents in the Yale-affiliated hospital system, patient (n = 316) physical activity increased significantly from baseline (1.77+/- 0.84; p= & 1.94+/-0.98; p= respectively) at 6 months and 12 months of intervention, as measured by the YPAS, in the intervention group; no change in the control group Manuscript under review, 5/06: Acad Med
