Current Practices for Accounting  for Preference Heterogeneity in Health-Related Discrete Choice Experiments: A Systematic Review

Paediatric teams in front of childhood obesity: a qualitative study within the stop project
CONCLUSIONS: Paediatric staffs know how to treat childhood obesity, but demand training on motivation. Effectivity on therapy of childhood obesity will be obtained after parents/carers recognize the problem and establish a trustful relationship with paediatric staff. The health system is still a barrier to the activity of paediatric personnel.PMID:35952911 | DOI:10.1016/ (Source: Actas Dermo-Sifiliograficas)
