Pediatric weight management interventions (PWMIs) have resulted in positive changes among family members and, if widely disseminated, could have an impact on pediatric weight management in rural communities.

The backward design process included the identification of end users: primary (facilitators to be trained through the packaged program and implementation blueprint), secondary (researchers and evaluators), terminal (caregivers and children impacted by PWMI participation), tertiary (community support organizations, funding agency promoting widespread PWMI, and payors), as well as, key outcomes for respective end user groups based on the reach, effectiveness, adoption, implementation, and maintenance (RE-AIM) framework.
