Evidence Translation - Framework, Consensus and Guidelines

Objective

To prepare consensus statements and guidelines regarding key determinants of Physical Activity Behaviours (PABs) and their prioritisation and utilisation within public policies and interventions.

Deliverables

WG Descriptor

WG2 Evidence Translation – Framework, Consensus and Guidelines – Multi-disciplinary expertise within and outside the DE-PASS Action and published convincing evidence of high quality will be used to achieve this objective. A Best Evidence Statement (BESt) regarding the key setting specific (e.g. family, home and School) and life course determinants of PABs that should be prioritised and targeted within public policies and interventions will be articulated. A consensus committee will confirm the quality and strength of evidence to be included, cross-sectional, longitudinal and intervention evidence derived from the objective measurement of PABs will be prioritised. Both positive and negative findings will be considered. Using similar criteria, the statement will also include a section dedicated to identifying new candidate determinants which should be placed on a future research agenda.

The BESt will ensure that all outputs from DE-PASS are framed by the current state of the art. Due to the extensive international and global multi-disciplinary reach of the Action (30+ countries; 50+ institutions; 150+ scientists and policy makers), and the use of online concept and consensus mapping software, it will be possible to:

Evidence based opening statements/factors relevant to the three tasks will be developed and circulated via a concept mapping software platform to targeted experts. A ranking of the determinants based on modifiability, feasibility to modify via public policy and intervention, strength of association with behaviour and expected population level effect of exposure to the determinant will be made. Trends in the grouping and ranking of expert views will be statistically analysed and subsequently various clustering and ranking of factors will be identified. These results will inform all DE-PASS deliverables and also provide the proof of concept (POC) for a mHealth app which will be promoted widely among relevant SMEs.

Other Working Groups

WG1

WG1 Overall Management, Capacity Building, Dissemination and Exploitation - Objective: To create and operationalise management, communication, Action capacity, dissemination and exploitation and long term sustainability plans and to ensure the timely and high quality achievement of the Action aim, objectives and tasks.

WG3

WG3 PABs Determinant Profile Measurement Toolkit - The new European Physical Activities Determinants Toolkit (EN-PADT) will be validated against objectively measured level of PABs. The measurement of individual determinant profiles include multi-level and multi-disciplinary perspectives, involves individually contributed data and linkages with existing data sources.

WG4

WG4 European Harmonisation of Data Collection - The capacity of all participating countries to deliver high quality harmonised data will be identified. The potential to progressively achieve research harmonisation across DE-PASS partner countries will be defined and proof of concept of: management of multi-nation research harmonisation; cohort baseline data collection; resource consolidation; database linkage and integration; calibration, weighting and population generalisation studies; federated data analysis and excellent data curation will be established.
