34Next Steps Provides structure, format, and content to visit Uses “19 Theme Visits”For Engaged Patient
35Next Steps, cont. Periods of Commitment Visits are over an extended period of time (?6-12 mo?) ”Touch Points”MOST IMPORTANT: Patient/Family/Provider Triad decides on themeClinician may need more training/skills - MI
36THEMED VISITS A B C Critical Concepts for Choosing Themes: _Themes with greater pay off should happen earlier_The patient’s/family’s culture should be considered and incorporated into the visits_Provider’s expertise and knowledge base_Use Universal Messaging across all visits, such as 5210ABC

39ACategory A theme will hopefully set the foundation for all of the other visits.POSSIBLE FIRST THEMED VISITPurpose: Set the foundationDiscussion ThemeMaterial for DiscussionUnderstanding Health(Set a foundation for good health.)· Define the origins of health—some is genetic and some family derived· Focus should be on maintaining or improving current health· Work with patients and families to understand that they are managing their health
40B The 6 Highest Pay-off Themes NEXT COUPLE VISITS THEMED VISITSBThe 6 Highest Pay-off ThemesNEXT COUPLE VISITSPurpose: Introduce concepts that are important to cover early for successDiscussion Theme for Each VisitMaterial for DiscussionUnderstanding Meaning of Healthy Food· Eat less processed food· Consume more fruit, vegetables, whole grains· Discuss where to get healthy foods· Discuss affordability of healthy foods· Eat foods that are closest to their natural state—can they be found in nature or at a farm?Home Environment· Create a supportive environment in house for success· Enlist other family members, same healthy meals for all, not just for patient· Be pro-active - get less healthy foods out of the house
41NYC Behaviors and Emotions Around Eating · Encourage mindful eating—are you actually hungry?How do you know you are hungry?· Address typical triggers for eating. Eating when fighting Eating when bored Eating when sad, angry, or lonelyEating with Television· Most common solution= redirect to alternative activities to eating (e.g. go for a walk, play with a friend, do a craft)Portion Sizes(could be combined with label reading)Use balanced plate tool—consider giving out a physical example. (Picture of a plate with appropriate portions.)Sugary Beverages· Consider using tools to review beverages, sports drinks, juices, teas—sugar bottle display? Consider graph depicting recommended sugar limits compared with amount in beverage.· Combine with discussions about calcium, milk, and waterNYC
42Parenting· Positive reinforcement is more powerful then punishments for behavior change. Target a high ratio of praise to commands/criticism.Practice this skill at office or with peers.· Make comments specific, immediate, and genuine.· Start small – target 1- 3 behaviors for change initially.· Physical praise works as well (high fives, stickers, ect).· Be prepared for resistance. Kids test limits or act out to see if parents mean what they said. Consistency pays off as an individual caregiver and between caregivers.5210

46FOLLOW-UP – its hard!!!!1. TIE the reason to something else – asthma, lab recheck2. LOAD the plan for early program successes3. CONSIDER having patient and family define the frequency of follow up.Patients often do not come in for weight related follow-up visits. Behavior change is not easy work for the patient or provider. Providers must proactively increase the odds of patient success, including follow-up visits. You might be able to better engage your patients using one of the following strategies:
47FOLLOW-UP – its hard!!!!4. GIVE a prescription 5. RECOGNIZE that follow up is most likely to happen if the patient perceives value to the visit. 6. CREATE an atmosphere of FUN in the office.
