Testing draft recommendations on weight management during pregnancy and after childbirth (2010)
The fieldwork looked to review the relevance, utility and implementability of the guidance with key stakeholders. The fieldwork consisted of:
Three day-long workshops in Manchester and London;
Eight regional focus groups held at PCTs and Children’s Centres;
24 in-depth telephone interviews with those unlikely to attend workshops and focus groups such as GPs and Practice Nurses.
The recommendations were aimed at all those with a direct or indirect responsibility for weight management during pregnancy or after childbirth. The findings from this fieldwork were presented to PHIAC in April 2010.
