Sustainable prevention of obesity through integrated strategies (WC2011-071)

Sustainable prevention of obesity through integrated strategies

Methods

Starting date: 01/03/2012

The project is divided into 8 workpackages (WPs). 

WP1: Coordination of SPOTLIGHT.

WP2: Individual-level self-regulation determinants. The aim is to write a systematic review on individual-level self-regulation predictors of obesity. 

WP3: Obesogenicity of environments. The aim is to write two systematic review on the obesogenicity of environment (one on social environmental determinants and one on physical environmental determinants). Furthermore, the aim is to develop an instrument to collect data on obesogenicity (using Google Streetview). Lastly, the aim is to report on the association between community level factors and diet, physical activity and BMI. The GSV instrument will be used to assess community level factors, and individual-level data will be collected using an online survey in 5 EU member states. 

WP4: RE-AIM of multi-level interventions. The aim is to write a systematic review on the RE-AIM of evidence-based multilevel interentions.

WP5: Inventory of European community based interventions. The aim is to develop a Web-Atlast and report on the RE-AM of community projects in EU member countries.

WP6: Success- and failure factors for implementation. The aim is to write a report of success and failure factors associated with implementing and maintaining multi-level interventions aimed at obesity prevention, as well as a report on country-differences in these factors. Case studies will be identified in three EU member states to qualitatively assess success- and failure factors and compare the cases.

WP7: Dissemination and take-up of findings. The aim is to document the synthesized model based on WP 2-6 results and a set of handbooks/guidance documents. 

WP8: Data management and data storage.
