Course Description

Bariatric Patients who struggle with weight regain or extended plateaus need a structured program facilitated by skilled trainers. Our research shows that nearly 90% of struggling bariatric patients want a ‘bariatric specific’ program to help them deal with weight regain. 82% tell us that they would participate in such a program if their bariatric facility offered it.

Take steps to implement a program by enrolling in this Back on Track Facilitator Course. Digital files are included for the Facilitator Guidebook, visual aids and particpant booklets. However, all printed materials are available by ordering the course with the complete Facilitator Kit. (See details  below))  

Course agenda includes research on bariatric weight regain, facilitator instruction, administrative and marketing ideas, coaching techniques and 10 CEU’s from Taylor College of Nursing. 

Certified Back on Track Facilitators may teach classes in one of three ways: 1. For a BSCI affiliated hospital, 2. As an instructor working with a BSCI Licensee, or 3. Independently, by applying for and obtaining BSCI’s Educational Program.

You may complete this course all at once or as time allows. You will have access to all of the modules and downloads for 30 days.
