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

Sustainable prevention of obesity through integrated strategies


Starting date: 01/03/2012

During the first 18 months five systematic literature reviews were carried out within three different Work Packages (WPs). All review processes followed tight protocols which where aligned within and between the relevant WPs. A quality assessment instrument was developed to judge the methodological quality of both observational and experimental studies that were included in the reviews.

As the project will be further progressing in the upcoming years we will be able to:

- Provide additional multi-level entry points for community-based intervention approaches aimed at changing obesogenic behaviours;

- Provide the Reach, Efficacy, Adoption, Implementation and Maintenance (RE-AIM) of examples of multi-level intervention approaches across European Member states, and the RE-AIM of such interventions that are described in the scientific literature;

- Provide factors associated with success-and failure with regard to the implementation of multi-level intervention approaches;

- Provide an evidence-based model for effective multi-level intervention approaches in health promotion practice applicable across European regions, and disseminate the findings to European Member State stakeholders.
