Scientific rationale
Obesity is a global health problem, presenting as a complex disease affecting, along with overweight, over a third of world population. . In 2015, a total of 603.7 million adults and 107.7 million children were obese in the world. Obesity is both a serious disease and a symptom of other metabolic diseases and one of the top 3 health burdens created by human beings after smoking and violence. Compared with nonsurgical modalities, bariatric surgery represents the most effective treatment for morbid obesity, contributing to significant and long lasting weigth loss as well as reduced obesity-related comorbidities.

Bariatric surgery is gaining popularity as the procedure of choice for treatment of morbid obesity and T2DM, with results suggesting that weight loss and resolution of comorbidities, including T2DM, are better than those with other standard approaches (drugs). Moreover, bariatric surgery, or more appropriately “metabolic surgery,” has been proposed as a new treatment option for T2DM in obese patients with BMI > 35 kg/m2 who were not able to achieve glucose homeostasis with lifestyle modifications and medical treatment .
Metabolic surgery has evolved continuously in response to the escalating prevalence and social and economic burden of obesity and the metabolic syndrome By recent count, 579,517 bariatric metabolic operations and 14,725 endoluminal procedures are performed annually worldwide. These operations reduce body weight and improve or resolve a wide range of comorbid diseases. Currently, bariatric surgery is the only effective, safe, and durable therapeutic option for most patients with obesity. In addition, bariatric surgery research has produced a vast body of scientific evidence that is revealing consequential insights into metabolic diseases.


Education objectives

Overall objective
To provide learners an easy set of knowledge and practical experience, including a brief supervised traineeship, to be used in bariatric surgery

Detailed objectives

At the end of the workshop attendees will
• Achieve information about the challenge of fighting diabetes and the other diseases related to obesity through surgical interventions,

• Have the opportunity to improve the knowledge about the most common surgical procedures actually performed worldwide: sleeve gastrectomy, Gastric bypass, one anastomosis procedures, gastric banding.
• Every group of procedures (restrictive, malabsorptive) will be analyzed in terms of mechanism of action

Education activities structure
Theoretical and practical education activities: 8-h interactive and didactic education and training workshop

TBD

Tools
• Short videos will be presented to allow the “non surgeons” to achieve information about the different kinds of operations and how do they work, and the surgeons to share tricks and tips of surgical technique.
• Papers with simulated cases will be distributed to discuss the correct pathway and the best indication for surgery.

Other possible tools to give learners for dissemination

• Main articles (including guidelines) on bariatric surgery
• Posters on diagnostic and therapeutic approach to bariatric surgery
• Slide kit
• videos
• Electronic educational materials on USB
• Handheld devices kit
• Educational brochures for patients

Scientific rationale Continuous Glucose Monitoring and Insulin Pumpsare advanced ways for people with diabetes to check glucose readings in real-time and/or monitor glucose readings over a specific period and help to adjust the insulin dosage accordingly. Using a Continuous Glucose Monitor CGM system could instantly getblood glucose readings every 5 minutes so the need forfingerstick measurements would be significantly less . CGM can be used with or without an insulin pump.
Smart CGM could predict the high and low sensor glucose events up to 60 minutes in advance and provides access to additional algorithms and insights that can inform you of clinically relevant glucose patterns.
Professional CGM is used by the healthcare provider and could captures up to 288 glucose readings each day for up to six days and creates a personalized report that can help you better understand the cause and effect of your glucose variability.

Education objectives
Overall objective


To provide learners an easy set of knowledge and practical experience, including a brief supervised traineeship, to be used for the CGM and Insulin Pumps Detailed objectives
1. To increase the learners’ awareness about the role of different Health Care Providers in identifying patients for diagnostic and therapeutic CGM
2. To increase the learners’ knowledge of the methods for optimizing therapy and improve outcome using CGM, taking into accounts the possible complexity of clinical scenario;
3. To pursue enough learners’ skill in using CGM and the related technology including but not limited to the easy Mobile Apps
4. To increase the learners’ knowledge of the differences between professional and personal CGM
