How should we talk about weight-related issues in spina bifida consultations? Perspectives from children, families and healthcare professionals

Health and Wellness

Summary

This study explores the experiences of children, families and healthcare professionals when discussing weight-related issues and lifestyle behaviours in spina bifida clinic consultations. Specifically, the aims are:
  1. To explore the extent and nature of discussions around weight-related issues and lifestyle behaviours with children, families and healthcare professionals attending spina bifida clinics.
  2. To explore the barriers and facilitators to discussing weight-related issues with children, families and healthcare professionals. From these findings, we aim to identify where resources may be usefully developed and capacity built to facilitate weight-related discussions.
