TEXT MESSAGE-DELIVERED INTERVENTION ON SEDENTARY BEHAVIOUR

TEXT MESSAGE-DELIVERED INTERVENTION ON SEDENTARY BEHAVIOUR

HUNTER NEW ENGLAND LOCAL HEALTH DISTRICT

ehc is supporting Hunter New England (HNE) Local Health District (LHD) in developing a text message-delivered intervention to support caregivers of school-aged children to address their children’s sedentary behaviour and screen-time. We are working collaboratively with caregivers to design the content, timing, and tone of the text messages to ensure that the program is more likely to be successful when piloted. A scoping review of evidence has been conducted to inform the qualitative component of the project.
