Integrating Oklahoma Primary Care Practices and Community-Based Programs to Manage Obesity

A session at Priester National Health Extension Conference

Tuesday 16th April, 2013

2:40pm to 3:40pm (PST)

During this session we will discuss how to link primary care practices such as physician/clinics throughout the state with nutrition education programs offered by the Cooperative Extension Service based on experience with 24 clinics over a two-year period. We will share how to track the success of referral initiation, patient enrollment in the nutrition programs, and patient, physician, and nutrition educator satisfaction using de-identified data already being collected through OCES-FCS’s current enrollment and evaluation forms. Based upon lessons learned, we will share a draft implementation guide. This guide will provide other physician/clinics and county extension offices with the tools needed to create similar linkages. We believe that connections between PCPs and Cooperative Extension will be applicable throughout the United States and that studying the results of this implementation will yield knowledge that is generalizable to other geographic areas and settings.
