Chee Huei Phing, Hazizi Abu Saad, Barakatun Nisak Mohd Yusof, Mohd Nasir Mohd TaibAbstract:
Since the majority of adults spend a considerable amount of their time at work, the workplace has been scrutinised in several studies as a setting for physical activity interventions. Although the overall evidence in support of workplace interventions has been mixed, strong evidence suggests the need for individually tailored behaviour change intervention programmes at the workplace. Challenges related to physical activity assessment tools, study design and advocacy to translate evidence into practice were critically reviewed in this paper. Future studies should continue employing more effective strategies and studying employees over a longer period. This review seeks to serve as a reference for future workplace physical activity promotion programmes.Pages: 23-30 | 1354 Views 8 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
