Closing Out the Year with A Bang!

As I sit here and write this blog post, I can’t help but reminisce about how much our RMI-Family team has accomplished for the year 2017.

  1. Our protocol paper “The Readiness and Motivation Interview for Families (RMI-Family) Managing Pediatric Obesity: Study Protocol was published in BMC Health Services Research.
  2. We completed recruitment and enrollment for our pilot study at the Pediatric Centres for Weight and Health (PCWH) in Edmonton and Calgary (10 youth + 10 parents; total: 20 participants).
  3. The RMI-Family interview was revised based on our experiences during the pilot study, and feedback from our team members.
  4. We visited our research colleagues at the PCWH at Alberta’s Children’s Hospital in Calgary.
  5. Our Edmonton study site commenced enrollment for our ‘full’ study this month so we’re ending the year with a bang (hooray!).

A huge THANK-YOU to our team members. Your hard work and dedication are recognized and appreciated. I also want to take this opportunity to say THANK-YOU to the clinicians and staff at the PCWH, and everyone who has read, liked and shared our blog posts – you help to spread the word about our research.

Merry Christmas, and best wishes for the New Year!
