Evaluation of CHANGE
We propose a cluster randomized control trial (cRCT) of 16 PCNs within Alberta. Implementation at the level of the PCN is more practical in comparison with implementing CHANGE into a single FD clinic (due to better access to physical space and allied health professionals) but maintains the strength of the local team environment. Patients with MetS will be recruited from each PCN. PCNs will be randomized to one of two arms: 1) CHANGE protocol delivered by a kinesiologist, dietitian and FD team or 2) usual care from FD.
