Developed as a series of office modules, A Pound of Cure is based on the nine Expert Committee Recommendations formed by the American Academy of Pediatrics and 14 other collaborating organizations in 2007. The Pound of Cure Learning Collaborative will bring together 12-20 practices throughout Ohio, from July, 2012 through May, 2013 with the goal of providing practices with tools and resources for managing their overweight and obese patient population. The intervention is presented as a set of succinct modules for use within a brief 15-20 minute time frame in a busy practice. These modules are structured to guide physicians in identifying a child’s overall obesity-related health risk by collecting a comprehensive history – including family, diet, and physical activity history – as well as a physical exam and laboratory evaluation. This information is used to prompt physicians to address fundamental behaviors that fuel excess weight gain at follow-up visits. The first wave of the Pound of Cure Learning Collaborative earned pediatricians 25 ABP Maintenance of Certification points.
