Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper examines the Scottish physical activity research collaboration. The Scottish physical activity research collaboration aims to contribute to the evidence base on physical activity and health by evaluating the effectiveness of specific practice-based interventions. Also aims to disseminate the above evidence amongst practitioners, policy makers and academics in appropriate ways and to facilitate the use of evidence to inform policy and practice. Raises the profile of research on health-related physical activity in Scotland with the academic community, research funding bodies, policy makers and practitioners.
