Baseline Adherence as a Predictor of Dropout in a Children's Weight-Reduction Program.
Israel, Allen C.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v55 n5 p791-93 Oct 1987
Examined relationship between baseline adherence and attrition among families involved in a children's weight-loss program. Evaluated overall baseline adherence by the degree of families' completion of food intake and activity records. Anything but high adherence during baseline was predictive of dropout, suggesting that this is a useful index for detecting high-risk subjects. (Author/KS)
