Williamsville, NY, United States, 2008/06/02 - Mr. Eran Kabakov, CEO of Info-Surge, will be presenting a webinar entitled “Using Multimedia and the Internet for Bariatric Surgery Patient Education and Informed Consent” on June 6th, 2008 - SurgicalReview.org.
The webinar is offered to the Surgical Review Corporation research forum members. The main focus will be on the use of multimedia technology to overcome many of the challenges bariatric surgery programs and health care professionals must contend with. These challenges include exposure to frivolous malpractice litigation, significant expenditure of precious time and resources to educate patients, pressure from growing competition, achievement of COE patient follow up requirements, and more.
The webinar target audience is bariatric surgeons, bariatric program coordinators, bariatric practice managers, other centers of excellence team members, and industry partners.
Mr. Kabakov commented: “I am excited with the opportunity to present to the Surgical Review Corporation’s Research Forum and share some of the experience we have gained with this new technology. I know how important bariatric surgery is in the fight against obesity. But weight loss surgery is a complex and challenging undertaking from the perspective of both the patient and surgeon. Communication and education are key to successful outcomes. In addition to current patient education trends, bariatric surgery programs can now support patients through internet based tools. These help patients make educated decisions about surgery, better manage their health care, and encourage the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle.“
