About the Project
That said, the underlying basic evidence has not been comprehensively translated into behaviour change interventions. The proposed project will build on this idea by developing the necessary evidence base to create an intervention aimed at promoting physical activity in typically inactive populations.
The objectives of the project will be:
a) Systematically review the existing evidence
b) Test theoretical principles to develop evidence base
c) Engage with stakeholders to develop a feasible and scalable physical activity intervention
d) Pilot the intervention in relevant population groups
