What this study adds
This study presents pilot data from the implementation and evaluation of an obesity management tool (5As of Obesity Management developed by the Canadian Obesity Network) in a primary care setting.
Results show that the tool facilitates weight management in primary care by promoting physician–patient communications, medical assessments for obesity and plans for follow-up care.
