Community wide interventions for increasing physical activity

Abstract: The independent commentary was written by Virginia Fernandes Moça Trevisani aBstraCtBACKGROUND: Multi-strategic community wide interventions for physical activity are increasingly popular but their ability to achieve population level improvements is unknown. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effects of community-wide, multi-strategic interventions upon population levels of physical activity. Cluster randomized controlled trials, randomized controlled trials (RCT), quasi-experimental designs which used a control popu… Show more

“…Nine reviews evaluated evidence regarding multicomponent community‐based or “whole of community” interventions . These interventions combined multiple elements to encourage healthy diet and increased physical activity across the entire population living within a geographically defined area, such as a city, village, or region.…”

“…Intervention components work at the personal, interpersonal, and community level and include communications (eg, media campaigns), social support (eg, self‐help groups), risk factor screening, counselling, and education about nutrition and physical activity in worksites, schools, and at community events as well as changes to the built environment (eg, cycle lanes) and local policy (eg, reduced prices on healthy foods, restaurant, and menu labelling). Of the nine reviews, three evaluated outcomes solely in terms of increases in physical activity, one in terms of increasing walking, and the remaining five weight‐related measures. One review incorporated a meta‐analysis but noted a high degree of heterogeneity between studies, two undertook quantitative synthesis, and the remainder were narrative syntheses.…”

“…Suboptimal physical activity is a common phenomenon and a key behavioural risk factor for non‐communicable diseases (Guthold, Stevens, Riley, & Bull, 2018) that imposes a significant burden on healthcare systems worldwide (Ding et al, 2016). There is no consistent evidence supporting the benefits of intervention strategies for increasing physical activity (Baker, Francis, Soares, Weightman, & Foster, 2015) and individuals' decision‐making mechanisms that underlie adoption of physical activity remain a conundrum. Nurses play a key role in promoting healthy lifestyle behaviours (Blake & Harrison, 2013).…”
