Impact d'un programme ambulatoire d'éducation thérapeutique des patients obèses

Abstract : Background: Obesity is a global epidemic with nearly 650 million people affected. The increase in morbidity and mortality as well as the inherent health expenses have encouraged the emergence of a global and preventive approach with the implementation of therapeutic education programs. Objective: To evaluate the effect of the participation of obese people in the therapeutic education program proposed by the Regional Health Center of Carpentras on their quality of life and their risk of premature mortality. Method: Retrospective, single-center epidemiological study, including a population of 19 obese from November 2016 to July 2018. The quality of life was collected according to the EQVOD scale. The biometric data collected made it possible to assess the risk of premature mortality according to the ABSI z-score. Results: At 4 months, there was no statistically significant improvement in the overall quality of life or in reducing the risk of premature mortality. Conclusion: It seems that therapeutic patient education has a place in the management of obesity and in the prevention of its co-morbidities. This study is to be continued to demonstrate the effectiveness of this outpatient primary care from therapeutic education of the patient.
