SCHONHAUT B, Luisa et al. Concordance in nutritional diagnosis between the healthcare and school teachers teams, using the body mass index (BMI) in the borough of Colina. Rev. chil. pediatr. [online]. 2004, vol.75, n.1, pp.32-35. ISSN 0370-4106.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0370-41062004000100004.

Introduction: JUNAEB evaluates the nutritional state of schoolchildren using measurements of weight and height obtained by schoolteachers in the state schools. Objective: to compare the nutritional state using the BMI measured at school against that measured by the health team. Hypothesis: that the measurements taken by both teams are the same, with a kappa index of > 0,8. Methods: the concordance between both groups was analysed from the measurements taken from pupils of the 1st grade in 9 schools in the borough of Colina, involving 416 pupils. Results: Prevalence of overweight or obesity measured by schoolteachers was 38% and by health team 29% (p < 0,05); underweight 4,4% vs 5,8% respectively (NS). The concordance of the diagnoses was Kappa = 0.56. Conclusions: there was a low concordance in the diagnosis of nutritional state between healthcare and scoolteacher teams, making it indispensable to review the nutritional state evaluation process
