Next Steps is a guide for clinicians to help children and adolescents reduce and manage weight. This guide outlines a series of planned follow-up visits designed to teach evidence-based weight management strategies that can lead to success for the practitioner and patient. The Next Steps guide is available for purchase on the American Academy of Pediatrics online store.
