Setting up for success and addressing barriers when they arise:
As psychologists and nurses our aim is to support patients emotionally and behaviourally undergoing WLS surgery. It is accepted that a proportion of patients may not lose enough weight to be considered a success as measured by conventional %EBW results, and that some patients may not meet their own WLS expectations. As a group we champion the importance of the presurgical evaluation of patients to identify red flags, but how much time and emphasis is spent on setting patients up to do well, to have realistic expectations about their weight change post operatively, and to build self-efficacy to address challenges when they come up, needs to be increased. These presentations will highlight the strengths of the presurgical evaluation, what is needed to set a patient up for success, and how we can triage and help them overcome barriers that stand in the way of continuing healthy practices when they regain weight or don’t meet their own expectations or those of their practitioners.
