Evaluation of the SickKids Team Obesity Management Program (STOMP)
The primary objective is to conduct an evaluation of the STOMP clinic as a model of care
with a specific focus on: (i) patient outcomes (anthropometric, metabolic, and
psychosocial); and (ii) care coordination and care satisfaction.
Patient outcomes will be compared against baseline evaluation data over time, and to a
control group of patients not enrolled in the program, but who expressed interest in the
program and were unable to attend.
Observational Model: Case Control, Time Perspective: Prospective
