Health, Exercise & Physical Activity Research Digest: October 2014

posted Aug 30, 2014, 7:27 AM by Ben Jane   [ updated Jun 4, 2015, 1:35 PM ]
September saw the release of the new NICE guidelines for exercise referral and a public consultation on the new guidelines from Public Health England. Scroll down further and there are several nutrition links including podcasts and recent journal articles and then a few random links to physical activity and nutrition news at the bottom of the page.

Physical Activity and Health


NICE Guidance PH54: Exercise referral schemes to promote physical activity [www]
The long awaited NICE guidance on exercise referral schemes. The recommendations within PH54 are designed to replace recommendation 5 of PH2 (2006) that recommended against the funding or referral to an exercise referral scheme unless it is part of a research study. This has been replaced with the recommendation that commissioners should not fund those that are simply sedentary but can fund those that are sedentary and have further risk factors for various health conditions (e.g. CHD, stroke, type 2 diabetes). The guidance goes on to recommend that any scheme that is funded should incorporate behaviour change techniques outlined in another recent NICE guideline (PH49, Jan 2014), collects data outlined in the standard evaluation framework (NOO) and makes this data available for analysis. There is also a recommendation for Public Health England to develop and manage a system of collating this information.

September was time for a two week consultation period on this interim draft document that is designed to influence government and social policy.

686 Portugese children aged 9-10 wore accelerometers for 7 days and a selection of other factors were identified as being potential correlates of sedentary behaviour. It was found that individual and family characteristics were more closely associated with levels of sedentary behaviour than school related factors. Boys, children with more siblings and those who slept more were less likely to be sedentary and children from families with higher income levels were associated with being more sedentary.

About this page
Each month I will include a range of journals, articles and research papers that I think are relevant to students and professionals interested in the area of Health, Exercise and Physical Activity (HEPA). Content is largely based on peer-reviewed findings but will also include links to blogs and videos that have come to my attention in the previous month. If you think you have seen something that might be of interest then please let me know at bjane@marjon.ac.uk or @benjanefitness.
