POWER is uniquely positioned to evaluate characteristics of multi-component PWM programs that are associated with "favorable" health outcomes for treatment-seeking youth with obesity. The POWER Data Coordinating Center developed ranking reports of the 33 participating sites based on weight status change at 6 months. An in-depth review of program design of 4 "top-performing" sites was conducted. A unique feature identified was offering an individual program orientation session to patient-families prior to the start of the multi-component PWM program. This orientation helped patient-families better understand the program's expectations, and offered an opportunity to evaluate readiness to change, barriers for making lifestyle changes, and mental health problems. This information was used to tailor the intervention to better meet the needs of participating patient-families. When a survey of program characteristics was conducted of the 33 participating sites, this "top-performing site" was the only one to offer such a program orientation session prior to patient-families starting the PWM program. Therefore this program feature was included as part of the "bundle of program enhancements" (BPE) for this proposed pragmatic pilot study.
