Engaging CommuniTy StakEholders in Developing and Implementing Indoor Movement-BAsed PrograMs in PUblicly Available SPaces
We are a group of health-care professionals and researchers dedicated to promoting physical activity within the community. As part of the People to Population (P2) Research collaboration, our focus is on health promotion and community engagement.
To increase physical activity in the community by providing comprehensive consultations to communities and groups for developing and implementing movement-based programs using their local resources, publicly accessible indoor spaces and environments.
- Explore facilitators and barriers to developing, maintaining and participating in indoor movement-based programs (IMBP)
- Develop and evaluate a model to guide community-level IMBPs
Less than one in five Canadian adults meet the national guideline of minimum physical activity: 150 minutes of weekly aggregated physical activity with a minimum of 10 minutes sessions with a moderate to vigorous intensity.
This study hopes to explore mall-managers' facilitators, constraints and barriers in adopting and managing long-term sustainable indoor movement-based programs (IMBP) in their facilities
We are building an international team of experts with a shared passion for increasing population-level physical activity
