Childhood obesity Outcomes Review (CoOR) study

Evidence from the Childhood obesity Outcomes Review has been incorporated in a NICE guidance on ‘Managing overweight and obesity among children and young people: lifestyle weight management services.'

NICE logo This study was led by CTRU senior research fellow, Dr Maria Bryant with funding from the NIHR HTA.  The main output of the work is a outcomes framework, in which Maria, her team (Mr Lee Ashton, Professor Julia Brown,  Professor Susan Jebb, Ms Judy Wright, Ms Kath Roberts and Professor Jane Nixon) and a group of national collaborators have proposed 2 primary and 50 secondary outcome measures recommended for use in the evaluation of childhood obesity treatment interventions.  The monograph for the CoOR is currently in press with an anticipated release in January 2014 and full details of the NICE guidance can be found at http://guidance.nice.org.uk/PH47
