The Health Behaviour Change Research Group are delighted that Dr Paula Carroll, Health Sport and Exercise Science, Waterford Institute of Technology will deliver our next seminar on Wednesday 14 March, 1-2pm in G065 on the ground floor of the School of Psychology, NUI Galway. Her talk will detail Men on the Move: The story of a community based PA programme for inactive men.
This seminar will detail the journey from an ‘idea’ to a national efficacy and replicability trial of Men on the Move, a community based PA programme for inactive men. Both the process of designing, developing and implementing the programme across 8 counties, engaging over 900 men will be detailed along with the outcome biopsychosocial measures recorded up to 52 weeks. Qualitative data from participant interviews will also be presented to illuminate the personal impact of participation on the men’s overall health and well-being. Finally, the potential trajectory for Men on the Move to national scale up will be presented.
