Literature Evaluation Table Summary of Clinical Issue (200-250 words): Obesity is an issue of epidemic proportions in most of the developed countries. It has become an increasing concern in developing countries that have historically encountered the issue of under-nutrition. Obesity is a main health concern due to its serious health outcomes, increased mortality risks, and related economic and psychological costs. In most cases, obesity is caused by a combination of factors and disorders such as respiratory issues, eating disorders, heart diseases, hypertension, and diabetic problems. Obesity is a major risk since it shortens the lifespan of an individual suffering from this medical condition. Thus, Americans have turned to surgical procedures called bariatric surgery. The surgical procedure has shown significant results compared to traditional weight loss procedures. The bariatric surgical procedure involves permanent changes in the stomach and the digestive system hence contributing to reduced food intake and the absorption of the average nutrient. Nevertheless, the procedure poses significant health risks and drawbacks since it is a major surgical procedure. To limit the risk and side effects, an individual must first undergo medical evaluations to determine whether they are suitable for the procedure. Further, a potential bariatric surgery patient has to commit themselves to permanents changes in their lifestyles for long term weight loss goals to occur. PICOT Question: In bariatric patients (P), does taking part in pre and postoperative bariatric education classes (I) compared to not joining pre and postoperative education classes (O) raise overall weight loss (C) over a three-month period (T)?
