New PCWH Paper Accepted – “Why Don’t Families Initiate Care?”

For the past several years, we’ve been working with colleagues in Vancouver, Hamilton and Montreal on a qualitative study (Should I Stay or Should I Go?) to understand families’ reasons for starting, continuing, and terminating pediatric weight management.

Following the publication of our study protocol in 2012, the first paper from this study (led by Arnaldo Perez, PhD Candidate, UAlberta) explored parents’ reasons for not initiating pediatric weight management after their children were referred for care. We learned this week that Arnaldo’s paper was accepted for publication in Paediatrics & Child Health, the official journal of the Canadian Paediatric Society. The abstract and pdf will be posted here in the coming weeks. Great work, Arnaldo!
