The Impact of Educational Materials on Family Behavior

2014-08-27 03:18:45 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of the research is to learn whether written materials or handouts that are given to parents are helpful in changing knowledge or behavior.


Few written resources for families have been tested in the primary care setting. Kid STRIDE (STRiving to Improve Diet & Exercise) is an educational booklet designed for parents of overweight children. We hypothesize that this booklet will benefit a small percentage of the overweight and obese population of children as a first-tiered approach to treatment of overweight and obese children.
