Over the past several years, our team of clinicians and researchers developed a weight management intervention for parents of children with obesity called Parents as Agents of Change.
Developing interventions can be done in a number of different ways. From our perspective, it was important to be thoughtful, systematic, and apply an evidence- and theory-based approach, which included following a sequence of steps known as Intervention Mapping.
The results of following this multi-step, multi-year process to develop PAC were published recently in BMC Research Notes (see pdf below). A special thanks to Dr. Aislin Mushquash who helped us to finalize our paper over the past year.
