EVALUATION OF A PILOT WORKPLACE HEALTH PROMOTION INTERVENTION TARGETING EMPLOYEES' HEALTH BEHAVIOURS: THE MOTIV8 WORKPLACE SERIES

Smith, Abby 07 December 2009 (has links)
Background: The workplace provides a setting to offer health promotion interventions to a large proportion of adults. Given the high rates of obesity and chronic disease among this population, it is of public health importance to provide and evaluate these interventions. Objectives: The purpose of this study was to pilot an evaluation of the Motiv8 Workplace Series (MWS) using the RE-AIM framework. The objectives of this study were 1) to provide measures of adoption, reach, and implementation of the MWS, 2) to provide estimates of the effectiveness of the MWS in changing physical activity and healthy eating behaviours, and in changing theoretical variables from the social cognitive theory and the health action process approach, and 3) to use the data to investigate the role of theoretical variables as mediators in changing these health behaviours. Methods: This pilot study used a quasi-experimental, non-equivalent control group design. The study population consisted of employees aged 18 and older, living in Kingston and surrounding area. The study investigated 1) the participation rate and representativeness of participating workplaces (adoption), 2) the participation rate and representativeness of employees participating in the MWS (reach), 3) the extent to which the MWS was implemented as intended (implementation), and 4) the impact of the MWS on participants through measures of behavioural outcomes (effectiveness). A questionnaire was administered at baseline and 1-week follow-up. Results: Objective 1. The participation rate was low among workplaces. Participating and non-participating workplaces were similar with respect to all characteristics except past public health programming. There was also a low rate of participation among employees. Participants did not appear to be representative of all workplace employees. Objective 2. There was a significant difference in healthy eating (p<.05), but no significant difference in physical activity (p>.05) between participants in the intervention and comparison groups at follow-up. Objective 3. There was evidence for action planning as a partial mediator of the relationship between the intervention and healthy eating. Conclusions: The preliminary findings from this evaluation suggest that the MWS had moderately low reach and adoption, good program implementation, and was effective at changing eating behaviour among employed adults. / Thesis (Master, Kinesiology & Health Studies) -- Queen's University, 2009-12-04 10:34:13.947

Bridging the gap

Barbour, Anna Maria 15 July 2004 (has links)
The urban realm is a collage of ruin, artifact, and modern invention. Whole pieces and fragments linger untouched or prosthetized onto new constructions, creating a landscape of monsters. These creatures, beautiful or grotesque, metamorphose through time. The tendons that tie these body parts together tell the story of architecture. This thesis explores the joint between such members: the detail of the space between. / Master of Architecture

Evaluation of the Effects of the Math to Mastery Intervention Package with Elementary School Students in a School Setting

Mong, Michael Douglas 09 August 2008 (has links)
The purpose of this study was to empirically evaluate the effects of the Math to Mastery intervention package in a school setting. The participants in this study were elementary school students who were performing at least one year below grade level in math. A between-series multiple baseline design across participants was used to evaluate the effects of the Math to Mastery intervention. Results revealed that the multi-component intervention was successful in addressing the student’s academic skill deficits on single skill intervention probes. Improvement was also observed on multiple skill grade level, generalization probes. However, the impact was not as strong on these probes as for single skill probes. Implications for implementation in applied settings and future research are provided.
