Process evaluation of the Hunter Illawarra Kids Challenge using parent support study: a multisite randomized controlled trial for the management of child obesity

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The purposes of this article are to (a) outline findings

    from secondary or process outcome data of the Hunter

    Illawarra Kids Challenge Using Parent Support

    (HIKCUPS) study and (b) inform the design and development

    of future research interventions and practice in the

    management of child obesity. Data were collected by

    means of facilitator evaluations, independent session

    observation, attendance records, and parent questionnaires.

    Internal validity and reliability of the program

    delivery were high. All parents reported positive changes

    in their children as a result of the physical activity program,

    the dietary modification program, or both. Most

    participants completed the home activities, but more

    than half reported that finding time to do them was problematic.

    Facilitator review indicated that future programs

    should specifically cater to children of similar age or

    same sex, allow adequate time for explanation of complex

    nutritional concepts, and use intrinsic motivators for

    participants. Recommendations for future interventions,

    specifically the implementation of subsequent HIKCUPS

    or other multisite effectiveness studies, are detailed.
