Ethics approval and consent to participate
: Considerations about ethical issues are not part of this systematic review. However, when study participants address ethical issues about weight screening programs, we include this in the findings and discussion. Because this is a systematic review where we relied on existing research, ethics approval and consent are not applicable.
: Not applicable.
: This mixed methods systematic review was commissioned by The Norwegian Directorate of Health to contribute to a guidelines process. The Norwegian Directorate of Health was consulted throughout the process to ensure that the review question, population, setting etc. was correct to answer their needs but was not involved in the design of the study, the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data, or in writing the manuscript.
