Agreement Between Accelerometer-Assessed and Self-Reported Physical Activity and Sedentary Time in Colon Cancer Survivors

  • Presented on April 2014

Aim: Research conducted on the general population indicates self-reported measures of physical activity and sedentary behaviour are inaccurate, however it is not clear if this also applies to cancer survivors. The aim of this study was to compare accelerometer-based and self-reported measures of moderate- to vigorous-intensity physical activity (MVPA) and ...


Intervention Effects on Adolescent Physical Activity in the Multicomponent Space Study – A Cluster Randomised Controlled Trial

  • Presented on April 2014

Background: Multicomponent school-based interventions have the potential to reduce the age-related decline in adolescentsā€˜ physical activity (PA). Studies on the effect of school environment interventions have reported varying results. Purpose: To assess the effectiveness of a multicomponent environmental school-based intervention, designed to reduce the age-related decline in PA among adolescents. ...


Effectiveness of a Workplace Mindfulness-Based Multi-Component Intervention on Physical Activity and Sedentary Behavior

  • Presented on April 2014

Background and Aim: Mindfulness training can be an effective strategy to optimize lifestyle behaviors. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a worksite mindfulness-based multi-component intervention on vigorous physical activity in leisure time and sedentary behavior at work. Methods: In a randomized controlled trial design (n=257), 129 ...


The Sedentary Scholar Prevails? Associations Between Physcial Activity, Sedentary Behaviour and Academic Performance in Australian Children

  • Presented on April 2014

Background: Moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA), and more recently, sedentary behaviour, have well recognised health consequences. However, academic sequelae are less well understood. Some educators assert that promoting MVPA and discouraging sedentary behaviours in schools is important to maximise academic outcomes. Aim: To examine associations between MVPA, sedentary behaviour and academic ...




Neighbourhood Typologies and MVPA and Sedentary Time Outside School Hours

  • Presented on April 2014

Purpose: Most studies of neighbourhood features examine singular neighbourhood attributes, which may pattern in different ways. This study aimed to identify typologies of neighbourhood attributes and their associations with physical activity among children. Methods: The homes of 808 children aged 5-6 and 10-12 years were mapped in a Geographic Information System. ...


Active Commuting to School in Sedentary Children: The Role of the Parents

  • Presented on April 2014

Abstract: Active commuting to school (ACS) is an important source of physical activity for young people and may be helpful in fighting the obesity epidemic. However, children are subject to their parents restrictions and are not totally independent when choosing their active behaviors. The aim of this study is to ...


Accelerometer-Determined Physical Activity Among Colon Cancer Survivors: Associations with Health-Related Quality of Life and Fatigue

  • Presented on April 2014

Purpose: The primary purpose of this study was to determine associations of accelerometer-assessed moderate- to vigorous-intensity physical activity (MVPA) and sedentary time with health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and physical function and well-being in colon cancer survivors. Methods: Colon cancer survivors (N=181) from Alberta, Canada (n=92) and Western Australia (n=89) ...
