• Intervention
    What is the evidence regarding the difference in effectiveness for individual- vs. group-based nutrition counseling?
    • Conclusion

      Three positive-rated RCTs evaluated individual vs. group counseling targeted to weight or diabetes management in middle-aged subjects. These short-duration studies found group counseling significantly more effective than individual counseling. Further research is needed to support these findings.

      • Grade IV is Expert Opinion Only;
      • Grade V is Not Assignable.
      • High (A) means we are very confident that the true effect lies close to that of the estimate of the effect;
      • Moderate (B) means we are moderately confident in the effect estimate;
      • Low (C) means our confidence in the effect estimate is limited;
      • Very Low (D) means we have very little confidence in the effect estimate.
