Changing eating behaviours to treat childhood obesity in the community using mandolean: The community mandolean randomised trial (COMMANDO), A pilot study
I would question your statement in the conclusion that 'This study, like many others, demonstrates a failure of families to engage with and respond to primary care weight management interventions' because it is my view it is not so much the failure of families to the interventions but more the failure of the interventions to the families. Please feel free to get in touch to discuss.
