The Healthy Growth Initiative Primary Care Working Group



Healthy Growth Initiative Primary Care Working Group – Expression of Interest

BORN Ontario is developing a surveillance system for pediatric growth. This initiative is helping to evaluate Ontario’s Healthy Kids Strategy and responds to the Healthy Kids Panel Report recommendation for a ‘surveillance system to monitor childhood weights, risk factors and protective factors over time’. We are looking for primary care providers to help guide the development of clinical reports to help inform practitioners about the growth of children and youth in their practices, including risk and protective factors. Your expertise will help us to understand what data gaps exist in your clinical practices and how reports with comparisons at the regional and provincial level may assist you.

We need your expertise
BORN’s Healthy Growth Initiative is forming a Primary Care Working Group to seek advice from primary care providers and/or professional group representatives to guide the development of clinically relevant healthy growth reports for health care providers.
