In a nutshell: A study examining the views and experiences of parents of primary care as a treatment setting for childhood obesity management.  In-depth interviews found that parents expressed concerns about initiating a consultation for fear of being blamed for their child’s weight and were concerned about their child’s mental well-being.  Similarly, concerns were expressed about the knowledge, time and resources allocated to childhood obesity management in this setting.  The authors suggested that a multi-disciplinary approach may help address some of these concerns and provide a more effective service.
