These slides are intended to help clarify the issues around prescribing of orlistat for the management of obesity, in support of the QIPP initiative. They can be downloaded to use in discussion with colleagues, or viewed online. Before using the key slides, it is very important to read the accompanying notes pages carefully and have a good understanding of the content and educational messages. The recorded commentary provides an introduction to the topic and highlights the key issues around orlistat prescribing.
