Physical activity recommendations for aging adults do not account for possible benefits of light-intensity physical activity on physical function. The purpose of this study was to assess if a sum of all physical activities (regardless of intensity) related to physical function for aging adults, independent of physical activity guidelines. This cross-sectional study was conducted with baseline data of the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA n = 25,072) including ages from 45 to 85. Physica...

Abstract Objective To synthesize knowledge regarding the effect of health care provider-delivered physical activity interventions on cancer survivors’ physical activity behaviour. Methods Ten electronic databases were searched for articles reporting on the effect of health care provider-delivered physical activity interventions on cancer survivors’ physical activity behaviour. Articles were included if they met the following criteria: English-language, participants were adult cancer survivors, t...

Background Physical activity (PA) can promote mental health, but the mechanisms underpinning this association are not well-established. This study examined if perceptions of three basic psychological needs (autonomy, competence, relatedness) and moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) mediate the association between number of years participating in PA and mental health in adolescence.

Abstract Introduction Learners’ perceptions of feedback can significantly undermine its impact. Consequently, some feedback has been known to fall on deaf ears. At times when stress is heightened, however, feedback may hold value for both learning purposes and reassurance. Because stress and uncertainty are intensified during the steep transition from medical school to residency, we aimed to explore new residents’ receptivity to feedback and the characteristics of feedback that could optimise it...

The objectives were to assess whether social support for healthy eating and perceived food environment are associated with diet quality, and to investigate if sociodemographic characteristics moderate these associations. A probability sample of French-speaking adults from the Province of Quebec, Canada, was recruited in the context of the PREDISE study. Participants reported their perceptions of supportive and non-supportive actions related to healthy eating from close others at home and outside...

Abstract Both spending time outdoors and participating in physical activity improve mental health. Given that the outdoor environment provides an ideal location for physical activity, better understanding of the relationships among time spent outdoors, physical activity and positive mental health is needed to help guide interventions. The aim was to examine if physical activity moderates or mediates the relationship between outdoor time and positive mental health. Two-hundred-forty-two participa...

Background: Co-participating in physical activity (PA) with others is associated with higher levels of PA in youth. However, PA can occur in several social contexts and few researchers have longitudinally compared associations of different social contexts with moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) or whether having many people available to participate in PA with is associated with greater MVPA. We examined whether changes in different social contexts of PA and variety of PA companions ar...

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a neurodegenerative disease associated with cognition and balance impairments, which can lead to accidental falls. Postural control requires cognitive resources. This interaction is quantifiable by using the dual-task paradigm. The cognitive-postural interference (CPI) is commonly evaluated through an assessment of the dual-task cost (DTC). However, heterogeneous methodology for the assessment of DTC creates ambiguity and complicates comparison of results documenting a...

Abstract Background and aims The “Life's Simple 7” (LS7) metrics were developed by the American Heart Association (AHA) to assess and promote cardiovascular health in the American population. The purpose of this study was to assess the overall cardiovascular health of French-speaking adults from the Province of Quebec using the LS7 score. Methods and results A total of 777 age and sex-representative participants of five different administrative regions in the Province of Quebec (387 men and 390 ...

Abstract Purpose Sport participation promotes mental health and prevents mental illness. However, the association between specific sport profiles and mental health has not been examined. We investigate the longitudinal association between number of years with a recreational or performance sport profile and mental health during adolescence and whether these associations differ by sex. Methods Participants (n = 318, 58.2% female) reported participation in sport every 4 months over 5 years, from ag...
