SCHOOL NURSE STUDY Childhood obesity research opportunity

Sharon White - Tuesday, June 25, 2019 -


A research team comprising colleagues from the University of Liverpool and University of Manchester, is studying how primary schools address child weight management within conversations with parents in schools.

We would like to invite school nurses working within UK primary schools to take part in a 2-phase study where you would firstly audio-record some discussions with parents where you address a child’s weight, eating or physical activity, and have an interview with a researcher about your experiences of doing this. Secondly, you would be given access to free training resources to help educators to enhance skills relating to the task of discussing child weight-related behaviours with parents. You would then be invited to attend a 90-minute focus group (held at a school or university) to discuss your views about this training within a small group of other educators and parents who have also taken part in the study.

You are not obligated to take part in both phases of this study and we would be happy to discuss any queries relating to this research before you decide whether or not to participate. If you are interested in taking part, please get in touch with the team using the contact details below.

Kind regards,

Dr Anna Chisholm PhD, CPsychol, AFBPsS

On behalf of the TEnT PEGS@School Project
