Telenutrition Center: Examining the Implementation of Behavioral Therapy for Obesity

2019-03-05 02:29:15 | BioPortfolio


The Telenutrition Center will use the Reach, Effectiveness, Adoption, Implementation and Maintenance (RE-AIM) Framework to assess the implementation of an evidence-based, intensive behavior therapy (IBT) for obesity intervention (with a motivational interviewing [MI] framework) based on the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) IBT for obesity benefit. The intervention will be examined under real-world conditions with technology supplementation to address obesity and related chronic disease among young adult (18-50 years of age) African Americans across the state. The intervention contact will model the CMS IBT for obesity benefit according to the patient contact schedule (of weekly visits in the first month, biweekly in months 2-7, and once a month per months 8-12) and include nutrition, stage of change and other physical and psychosocial assessments. Program delivery will be assisted by the "Bridge2U" web and mobile platform and supported in both clinic and community settings. The proposed project will shed new light on how IBT for obesity (and similar) models may be amended to facilitate the provision of health care resources in areas with limited to no resources, such as the state of Mississippi.
