How to develop, implement and maintain a community-based, pediatric healthy weight clinic.
This guide is a "nuts and bolts" manual about how to implement a healthy weight clinic in a primary care practice. A healthy weight clinic, as described here, provides multi-disciplinary, community-oriented care within the medical home setting for children and adolescents who are overweight or obese. This guide is an evidenced-based template for this specialized care. It incorporates current best practices that are practical and easy to implement in any primary care setting from community health centers or resident training sites to private offices.
