Pediatric Weight Management

Pediatric Weight Management (PWM) Systematic Review (2015)

 A panel of experts appointed by the Academy, reviewed the EAL pediatric weight management content and developed guidelines based on new science. A highly structured data extraction tool, developed by the Academy, was used in the systematic review process  to conduct a more rigorous analysis and in-depth syntheses of the evidence.  

The workgroup focused on two topic areas:
  • Multicomponent PWM Interventions and Weight Status Outcomes (BMI, Waist Circumference, BMI Z-score, BMI Percentile)
  • Treatment Context in Multicomponent PWM Interventions [Family participation, length of treatment, treatment setting (clinic vs. outside the clinic), group sessions (vs. individual sessions only] and Weight Status Outcomes
