Evaluating the Videos
The videos were evaluated by comparing healthcare providers’ knowledge, and confidence in addressing weight-related issues with pediatric patients before watching the videos, after watching them, as well as 4-6 months later.
Most healthcare providers reported a change in their practice after watching the videos, and their confidence in addressing weight-related issues improved after watching.
This educational toolkit of videos based on the 5As framework showed changes in healthcare providers confidence and behaviours in addressing weight-related topics with children and families.
