Description:

Health Evidence will be hosting a 90 minute webinar on a series of five recent reviews examining overweight and obesity prevention, treatment, and weight maintenance strategies among children, youth, and adult populations.

Dr. Leslea Peirson, Review Coordinator, McMaster Evidence Review and Synthesis Centre, will present key messages from the following five reviews:

Peirson, L., Fitzpatrick-Lewis, D., Morrison, K., Ciliska, D., Kenny, M., Ali, M. U., et al. (2015).Prevention of overweight and obesity in children and youth: A systematic review and meta-analysis.. CMAJ Open, 3(1), E23-E33.(2)

  • Key findings: Behavioural prevention interventions are associated with improvements in weight outcomes in mixed weight child/youth populations

Peirson L., Fitzpatrick-Lewis D., Morrison K., Warren R., Ali M.U., & Raina P. (2015). Treatment of overweight and obesity in children and youth: a systematic review and meta-analysis.. CMAJ Open, 3(1), E35-E46.(2)

  • Key findings: Behavioural treatment interventions for overweight and obese children and youth are associated with a significant reduction in BMI compared control groups

Peirson, L., Douketis, J., Ciliska, D., Fitzpatrick-Lewis, D., Ali, M. U., & Raina, P. (2014). Prevention of overweight and obesity in adult populations: A systematic review.. CMAJ Open, 2(4), E268-E272.(2)

  • Key findings: No clear conclusions were found to determine whether behavioural interventions lead to weight-gain prevention and improved health outcomes in normal-weight adults

Peirson, L., Douketis, J., Ciliska, D., Fitzpatrick-Lewis, D., Ali, M. U., & Raina, P. (2014). Treatment for overweight and obesity in adult populations: a systematic review and meta-analysis.. CMAJ Open, 2(4), E306-E317.(2)

  • Key findings: Behavioural and pharmacologic + behavioural treatments for overweight and obesity in adults lead to clinically important reductions in weight and incidence of type II diabetes in pre-diabetic populations

Peirson, L., Fitzpatrick-Lewis,D., Ciliska, D., Ali, M. U., Raina, P., & Sherifali, D. (2015). Strategies for weight maintenance in adult populations treated for overweight and obesity: a systematic review and meta-analysis.. CMAJ Open, 3(1), E47-E54.(2)

  • Key findings: Overweight and obese adults can benefit from interventions for weight maintenance following weight loss
