HEPA Europe 2016 Belfast – 28th – 30th September 2016

SITLESS has got a symposium accepted for the HEPA Conference 28th – 30th September 2016 in Belfast

Summary: To promote active and healthy ageing, reducing sedentary behaviour (SB) among older adults remains a challenge alongside increasing their levels of physical activity (PA). However, complex behaviour change is required to achieve and maintain benefits gained from specific interventions. SITLESS aims to provide new evidence on how to develop a robust complex intervention combining the effects of a PA intervention with self-management strategies to decrease SB in community-dwelling older adults, and test it using objective and validated measures
