Abstract

We are looking at new effective ways to engage families in weight management. Going beyond targeting individuals out of their family context with a single intervention, we investigate ways of delivering tailored health information as an information service, using the family as a major contextual factor. In particular, we explore interaction modes and processes of engagement with families that would be most effective to provide an information service that users will perceive as a real benefit to them.
