Behavioral: STOMP Clinic
A new interdisciplinary clinic (STOMP) was created to provide care for children and adolescents with severe 'complex' obesity. As part of the program, a subset of adolescents undergo bariatric surgery. The core elements include an interdisciplinary team, frequent visits, individualized care plans for medically-complex adolescents) and building on other aspects, such as increased psychosocial intervention; involvement of a "key worker" (nurse practitioner) to support families; provision of continuity of care with other health providers in all settings, community services and schools; a more diverse patient population; and group support sessions.
The primary objective is to conduct an evaluation of the STOMP clinic as a model of care with a specific focus on: (i) patient outcomes (anthropometric, metabolic, and psychosocial); and (ii) care coordination and care satisfaction.
Patient outcomes will be compared against baseline evaluation data over time, and to a control group of patients not enrolled in the program, but who expressed interest in the program and were unable to attend.
