Apps and wearables for monitoring physical activity and sedentary behaviour: A qualitative systematic review protocol on barriers and facilitators

Wilde, L. J., Ward, G., Sewell, L., Müller, A. M., & Wark, P. W. (2018). Digital Health. DOI: 10.1177/2055207618776454

Abstract: Monitoring of physical activity and sedentary behaviours by mobile phone applications (apps) and wearable technology (wearables) may improve these health behaviours. This systematic review aims to synthesise the qualitative literature on the barriers and facilitators of using apps and wearables to monitor physical activity and/or sedentary behaviour in adults...

Abstract: Objective Physical activity (PA) and a healthy diet can improve the well-being of cancer survivors. However, cancer survivors often do not engage in these behaviours. This study aimed to explore barriers and facilitators to engaging in these behaviours following cancer treatment. Methods During the development of a web-based intervention to enhance health-related quality of life in cancer survivors, 32 people who had...

Combined cognitive biases for pain and disability information in individuals with chronic headache: A preliminary investigation

Schoth, D. E., Parry, L., & Liossi, C. (2016). Journal of Health Psychology.
DOI: 10.1177/1359105316664136

Pain-related cognitive biases have been demonstrated in chronic pain patients, yet despite theoretical predictions are rarely investigated in combination. Combined cognitive biases were explored in individuals with chronic headache (n = 17) and pain-free controls (n = 20). Participants completed spatial cueing (attentional bias), sentence generation (interpretation bias) and free recall tasks (memory bias), with ambiguous sensory-pain, disability and neutral words. ...

Non-specific Mechanisms in Orthodox and CAM management of low back pain (MOCAM).  Theoretical Framework and Protocol for a Prospective Cohort Study

Bradbury, K., Al-Abbadey, M., Carnes, D., Dimitrov, B. D., Eardley, S., Fawkes, C., Foster, J., Greville-Harris, M., Harvey, J. M., Leach, J., Lewith, G., MacPherson, H., Roberts, L., Parry, L., Yardley, L., & Bishop, F. L. (2016) , BMJ open, 6:e012209. DOI: 10.1136/bmjopen-2016-012209

Components other than the active ingredients of treatment can have substantial effects on pain and disability. Such ‘non-specific’ components include: the therapeutic relationship, the healthcare environment, incidental treatment characteristics, patients’ beliefs and practitioners’ beliefs. This study aims to: identify the most powerful non-specific treatment components for low back pain (LBP), compare their effects on...
