RETOOL is based on the findings from RE-POWER trial, the largest randomized controlled trial (RCT) on weight management conducted to date in rural primary care (Befort et al, JAMA, 2020). Lessons learned from RE-POWER included:
Rural primary care clinics from Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, and Wisconsin
"We've always advised exercise, watch your diet, dietary counseling, all of those pieces, but I think this provides a plan for doing the things we didn't provide before."
"Being able to go back in to see my doctor and show her my weight loss progress was exciting. I was very thrilled to share that with her and she was so encouraging."
