CONversation Cards© were created to enhance communication between parents and healthcare professionals working in pediatric weight management. They are conversation starters designed to help parents identify the biggest challenges they face when addressing issues related to their children’s weight and health. Once parents identify their challenges, healthcare professionals can align their counseling and interventions with the issues that are most important to families. You can read more information here.

Conversation Cards

Clinicians have reported difficulties to effectively communicate with families regarding obesity, observations that indicate a need to improve how obesity is addressed in the healthcare setting. To enhance their day-to-day practice, clinicians have expressed a desire for clinical tools to help them support families managing obesity. Being able to identify their most pressing lifestyle concerns and priorities, clinicians can help families to set and meet lifestyle-related goals.

We developed CONversation Cards© (CCs) and Conversation Cards for Adolescents© (CCAs) that can serve as a priority-setting activity for parents and adolescents, respectively. These are tangible tools for clinicians to individualize treatment and set realistic goals. CCs and CCAs can help to optimize communication between families and clinicians, moving beyond a didactic or simple conversation about healthy behaviors.
