Knowledge, attitudes, and dietary self-regulation are critical predictors of overweight and obesity to maintain long-term weight management (Balani et al., 2019)…

Discuss how the stakeholders will maintain intervention fidelity moving forward.

Are champions appointed to assure sustainability?

Does the site plan to implement this project on other units?
