WP4: RCT of additional promotional interventions

Summary

We are establishing a randomised controlled trial at the Glasgow Connect2 site to examine whether a tailored self-help intervention delivered at the level of the individual can enhance the effects of an infrastructural intervention.

Why important?

The literature suggests that a supportive environment may be a necessary, but not a sufficient, condition to encourage regular physical activity and that people with a supportive environment and positive cognitions about walking may walk up to eight times as much as those without (Giles-Corti, 2006).
