LEVERAGING ACTION TO SUPPORT DISSEMINATION OF PREGNANCY WEIGHT GAIN GUIDELINES: A WORKSHOP

The Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council will develop a series of information resources to support guidance based on the recommendations of the report Weight Gain During Pregnancy: Reexamining the Guidelines. This effort will focus on three major audiences: health care providers, public health agencies, and community-based organizations and women’s groups. Working with sponsoring organizations, the project team will identify up to five key partnership groups within each audience for collaboration and creation of a core set of materials (an “information toolbox”) that includes print, electronic, and possibly video resources.

In addition, a planning committee will organize one 1-day workshop (Type 3) that will feature the toolbox of resource materials for (1) health providers and community health agencies, and (2) community leaders from organizations that interact with underserved populations, especially women planning pregnancy. A summary report will be prepared for the workshop by a designated rapporteur.
