Next Steps: A Practitioner's Guide For Themed Follow-up Visits For Their Patients to Achieve a Healthy Weight

A resource for teaching evidence-based weight management strategies.

The all-new Next Steps is a guide and flip chart for clinicians to aid in conversations with children and adolescents about reducing and managing weight. The guide outlines a series of planned follow-up visits designed to teach evidence-based weight management strategies that can lead to success for the practitioner and patient. The detailed flip chart is to be reviewed by the practitioner and family.

Next Steps was created through a partnership among NICHQ, The Barbara Bush Children's Hospital at Maine Medical Center, and the Maine Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. It is available for purchase on the AAP website.
