This mixed-methods study will survey three groups of stakeholders (bariatric patients, health professionals in bariatric care, health administrators/policy makers) to identify the most pertinent behavioural weight management intervention strategies that could be used before and/or after bariatric surgery to enhance long-term weight loss maintenance and management.
The first step of the project consists of qualitative interviews (recruitment ongoing) to examine stakeholders’ opinions of the types of resources or support that could help bariatric patients with long-term weight management in the context of bariatric surgery. Subsequent steps of the project consist of a stakeholder survey and a consensus meeting to develop an initial trial protocol for the behavioural weight management intervention.
This study aims at identifying the most pertinent behavioural weight management intervention tools or strategies (e.g., nutritional counseling, structured exercise) that could be used before and/or after bariatric surgery to optimize long-term weight management after the surgery.
