Spending long periods of time sedentary is associated with poorer health outcomes, yet adults with long term conditions and depression have high rates of sedentariness. Clinical guidelines for health are not clear on how to support adults with these conditions to reduce sedentary behaviours and no intervention targeting sedentary behaviours in this population group has been developed in the UK.
My PhD study aimed to systematically develop a health behaviour change intervention to reduce sedentary behaviour and substitute it with light physical activity.
The talk will report on how the intervention was developed and how it was further refined following a feasibility trial. The development of the intervention was guided by three complementary frameworks of health behaviour change interventions: the MRC framework for developing and evaluating complex interventions, the behaviour change wheel, and the person based approach.
The intervention was developed by synthesising 1) a qualitative study to understand day to day barriers and enablers of physical activity and sedentary behaviours for this population group, 2) a systematic review of quantitative studies to examine the effectiveness of interventions and components associated with better effectiveness 3) patient and public involvement. A mixed-methods feasibility study explored the intervention’s acceptability using the theoretical framework of acceptability, its mechanisms of action, and how the intervention could be refined to make it more acceptable to this population group
