To investigate leadership in clinical genomics and identify likely implications of different leadership approaches for future implementation of clinical genomics. We undertook 37 interviews in a cross-sectional qualitative study examining implementation of clinical genomics in Australia. Participants were either nongenetic medical specialists working with genomic initiatives (e.g., immunologists, nephrologists) or working at a service/organizational level (e.g., department heads, chief medical o...

BACKGROUND: Wearable activity trackers and social media have been identified as having the potential to increase physical activity among adolescents, yet little is known about the perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness of the technology by adolescents. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to use the technology acceptance model to explore adolescents' acceptance of wearable activity trackers used in combination with social media within a physical activity intervention. METHODS: The Raisin...

Abstract Objective Children and adolescents can be distinguished by different typologies (clusters) of physical activity and sedentary behavior. How physical activity and sedentary behaviors change over time within different typologies is not known. This study examined longitudinal changes in physical activity and sedentary time among children and adolescents with different baseline typologies of activity-related behavior. Methods In this longitudinal study (3 annual time points) of children (n ...

Background There is increasing availability of, and interest in, wearable activity trackers for children younger than 13 years. However, little is known about how children and parents use these activity trackers or perceive their acceptability.

Abstract Background Depression is a major global health burden and psychiatry requires evidence-based primary prevention and treatment strategies. Evidence suggests that certain dietary patterns, in particular, components of the Mediterranean diet, possess key biological factors associated with abating depressive risk and disease progression. We sought to evaluate the existing evidence regarding the association between the Mediterranean diet and depressive symptoms by conducting a systematic rev...

Adolescents engage in various combinations (typologies) of physical activity and sedentary behaviors, which impact their health and wellbeing in different ways. As such, there is a need to understand the factors that may inhibit or facilitate engagement in combinations of activity-related behaviors to help inform effective intervention strategies targeting those most in need. The aim of this study was to identify ecological correlates of adolescent physical activity and sedentary behavior typolo...

Background Active breaks in the classroom have been shown to be effective for increasing children’s physical activity, while simultaneously improving classroom behaviour outcomes. However, there is limited evidence on the feasibility and fidelity of these programs outside of the research context. The purpose of this study was to conduct a process evaluation to explore factors associated with feasibility and fidelity of a classroom active break (ACTI-BREAK) program designed to improve classroom b...

Background Clusters of adolescents differentiated by patterns of physical activity and sedentary behavior (activity-related typologies) are common. Understanding both the characteristics of adolescents and modifiable correlates of these typologies, can help to develop interventions for those most at risk. This systematic review aimed to synthesize the socio-demographic characteristics and modifiable correlates of activity-related behavioral typologies among adolescents.

Abstract Objectives To assess the feasibility and efficacy of a 6-week pilot active break program (ACTI-BREAK) on academic achievement, classroom behaviour and physical activity. Design Pilot cluster randomised controlled trial. Methods 374 children in Year 3 and 4 (74% response) were recruited from six schools across Melbourne, Australia. Schools were randomised to the ACTI-BREAK intervention or usual teaching practice. The intervention involved teachers incorporating 3 × 5 min active breaks in...

Abstract Objectives To identify typologies of activity-related behaviours and demographic characteristics of these typologies among Australian adolescents. Design Cross-sectional study of 473 Secondary School students (41.4% boys, mean age 14.95 ± 1.61 years) conducted in 2014–15. Methods Active travel to school, sport participation, leisure-time sedentary and demographic variables were self-reported in a survey. Duration of sedentary time and moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (mins/day) we...
