October 11, 2019: Guiding Good Choices for Health (GGC4H) Pragmatic Trial Enrolls First Participant

The GGC4H Demonstration Project, now in its implementation phase, has begun enrollment of study participants. Congratulations to Drs. Kuklinski, Sterling, and Catalano and the entire GGC4H study team!

GGC4H is a cluster-randomized trial that is testing the feasibility and effectiveness of implementing Guiding Good Choices—a universal evidence-based anticipatory guidance curriculum for parents of early adolescents—in three large, integrated healthcare systems serving socioeconomically diverse families. In prior community trials, the Guiding Good Choices curriculum has been shown to prevent adolescent substance use, depressive symptoms, and delinquent behavior. This study offers an opportunity to test the intervention’s effectiveness with respect to improving adolescent behavioral health outcomes when implemented at scale in pediatric primary care within a pragmatic trial.
