Why we need to define nurses' roles in bariatric patient care

Graham, Yitka, Lisa, Wilde, Melanie, Johnson, Ann, Fox, Jeanette, Scott and Hayes, Catherine (2019) Why we need to define nurses' roles in bariatric patient care. Nursing Times, 115 (6). pp. 34-35. ISSN 0954-7762

Item Type: Article


Patients who undergo bariatric surgery are likely to have wide-ranging care needs, not only because obesity is a complex condition but also because of the likely presence of comorbidities and because the procedure itself can have negative repercussions. Currently, the role of nurses in supporting patients undergoing bariatric surgery, whether in secondary or primary care, is not well defined. We must establish what the nursing support of bariatric patients should include; to do this, we need to involve patients in the co-construction of knowledge about their experience and needs.
