Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this directed project is to develop a user-friendly information booklet for patients in the first year post Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB). The goal of the booklet is to improve the quality of life of patients post-surgery by providing the progression of an eating pattern in the first year post-op and tips for achieving healthy weight loss. An expert review evaluation was conducted. Four experts in nutrition and/or bariatrics completed the evaluation. Opinion scores were determined using a 5-point Likert scale. Overall, the expert committee tended to agree with the evaluation items and offered suggestions for improvement to indicate the information booklet content as appropriate and the layout conducive to the target audience. In the future, to further evaluate the efficacy of the information booklet, a qualitative evaluation may be conducted on post RYGB patients using the information booklet to determine its ease of use and effect on dietary changes.
