NIHR CLAHRC West has secured £7,500 from the University of Bristol’s Brigstow Institute to work with several community groups to understand how best to communicate the UK Chief Medical Officers’ (CMO) new guidelines on physical activity.
The Government will publish the new guidelines in 2019. They will recommend how much physical activity people should do and what types of physical activity most benefit health. The new guidelines will be based on a comprehensive review of the latest research.
Through this project, the CLAHRC West team, alongside collaborators Knowle West Media Centre (KWMC), will make the physical activity guidelines more meaningful and useful for members of the public.
