Research Critiques and PICOT Statement Final DraftThe implementation of the childhood obesity identification and prevention at the primarycare is also another important new approach which can work effectively towards themanagement of obesity from the childhood age to prevent its burden in the future during lateadulthood. According to this new practical approach, rather than focusing on the control ofobesity at adulthood, it is important to start identifying and implementing pediatric obesityprevention approaches within the primary care as a method of curbing it during the early stagesof childhood. Just like any other method which involves the use of evidence-based approaches todiagnose and manage obesity, this approach is also using the evidence-based clinical activities tohelp in providing a brief as well as culturally effective information that is related to themeasurement, identification, and prevention of childhood obesity in the primary care settings.Therefore this study is responding to the PICOT question because it is aimed at exploring thecultural effective approaches that are related to the processes used in the management andtreatment of obesity among children to prevent its spread in the future as they becomeolder[ CITATION Ran151 \l 1033 ]. Conclusion The traditional approaches towards diagnosis and management of obesity are an effectivetreatment and diagnosis mechanism which can be relied on. It is based on the evidence-basedpractical approaches, however, this approach ignores some aspects of or factors associated withobesity among children and adults. It is always important to consider the psychological impact ofhaving obesity since most of these individuals are facing stigmatization which affects theirrecovery processes. The management and diagnosis of obesity require evidence-based strategies.
