Quality Standards of Obesity Prevention in Children - An Inventory
Project duration: 01/06/2015 - 31/01/2016
Project staff: Dr. Michael Noweski, Maria Ihm
Health prevention is undergoing a standardisation of the quality of procedures through the setting of new quality standards. The project examines current quality standards for primary prevention of obesity in children. Data collection is carried out by a systematic literature review in relevant databases and search engines (Medline, SpringerLink, Thieme Connect, Google Scholar) as well as an analysis of relevant documents from theory and practice. Although various organisations and scientific disciplines are involved in the standardisation of the quality of procedures, it is expected that agreement will exist notwithstanding a variety of concepts. The results of the examination should show ways to develop common standards that may be established within the framework of a nationwide consensus process.
