Physical activity and the environment: conceptual review and framework for intervention research.

Panter J, Guell C, Prins R, Ogilvie D. Int J Behav Nutr Phys Act. 2017 Nov 15;14(1):156. doi: 10.1186/s12966-017-0610-z. Review. Lay Summary Changing the environment is one way to promote physical activity, but evidence on the effectiveness of interventions is mixed. Different theories and conceptual issues may contribute to these inconsistencies. We conducted a systematic […]

Associations of active commuting with body fat and visceral adipose tissue: A cross-sectional population based study in the UK

Mytton OT, Ogilvie D, Griffin S, Brage S, Wareham N, Panter J Prev Med. 2017 Oct 10. pii: S0091-7435(17)30367-5. doi: 10.1016/j.ypmed.2017.10.017. [Epub ahead of print] Abstract The promotion of active travel (walking and cycling) is one promising approach to prevent the development of obesity and related cardio-metabolic disease. However the associations between active travel and […]

Population levels of, and inequalities in, active travel: A national, cross-sectional study of adults in Scotland.

Olsen JR, Mitchell R, Mutrie N, Foley L, Ogilvie D; M74 study. Prev Med Rep. 2017 Sep 28;8:129-134. doi: 10.1016/j.pmedr.2017.09.008. eCollection 2017 Dec Abstract This study aimed to describe active travel (walking or cycling) in Scotland and explore potential demographic, geographic, and socio-economic inequalities in active travel. We extracted data for the period 2012-13 (39,585 […]

Effect of a new motorway on social-spatial patterning of road traffic accidents: A retrospective longitudinal natural experimental study

Olsen JR, Mitchell R, Ogilvie D; M74 study team. PLoS One. 2017 Sep 7;12(9):e0184047. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0184047. eCollection 2017. Abstract BACKGROUND: The World Health Organisation reports that road traffic accidents (accidents) could become the seventh leading cause of death globally by 2030. Accidents often occur in spatial clusters and, generally, there are more accidents in less […]

Does exposure to new transport infrastructure result in modal shifts? Patterns of change in commute mode choices in a four-year quasi-experimental cohort study

Eva Heinen, Ameila Harshfield, Jenna Panter, Roger Mackett, David Ogilvie Journal of Transport & Health, Available online 2 August 2017, 10.1016/j.jth.2017.07.009 Abstract Background Intervention studies suggest that changing the built environment may encourage a modal shift from car travel towards active travel. However, little is known about the detail of patterns of changes in travel […]

Effects of urban motorways on physical activity and sedentary behaviour in local residents: a natural experimental study.

Prins RG, Foley L, Mutrie N, Ogilvie DB on behalf of the M74 Study Team Int J Behav Nutr Phys Act. 2017 Jul 27;14(1):102. doi: 10.1186/s12966-017-0557-0. Abstract BACKGROUND: There is little evidence on how changing the physical environment changes health-related behaviours. We studied the effects of the new M74 motorway (freeway) – opened in 2011 […]

The TIPPME intervention typology for changing environments to change behaviour

Gareth J. Hollands, Giacomo Bignardi, Marie Johnston, Michael P. Kelly, David Ogilvie, Mark Petticrew, Andrew Prestwich, Ian Shemilt, Stephen Sutton & Theresa M. Marteau Nature Human Behaviour 1, Article number: 0140 (2017) doi:10.1038/s41562-017-0140 Abstract Reflecting widespread interest in concepts of ‘nudging’ and ‘choice architecture’, there is increasing research and policy attention on altering aspects of […]

Longitudinal associations between built environment characteristics and changes in active commuting

Lin Yang, Simon Griffin, Kay-Tee Khaw, Nick Wareham, Jenna Panter BMC Public Health, VOLUME 17 SUPPLEMENT 1 Abstract Background: Few studies have assessed the predictors of changes in commuting. This study investigated the associations between physical environmental characteristics and changes in active commuting. Methods: Adults from the population-based European Prospective Investigation into Cancer (EPIC)-Norfolk cohort […]

Effects of living near an urban motorway on the wellbeing of local residents in deprived areas: Natural experimental study.

Louise Foley, Richard Prins, Fiona Crawford, David Humphreys, Richard Mitchell, Shannon Sahlqvist, Hilary Thomson and David Ogilvie, on behalf of the M74 study team PLoS One. 2017 Apr 5;12(4):e0174882. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0174882. eCollection 2017. Lay summary What were we trying to find out? A new five-mile section of the M74 motorway was opened in Glasgow in […]

Can environmental improvement change the population distribution of walking?

Panter J, Ogilvie D; iConnect consortium J Epidemiol Community Health. 2017 Mar 7. pii: jech-2016-208417. doi: 10.1136/jech-2016-208417 Abstract Background: Few studies have explored the impact of environmental change on walking using controlled comparisons. Even fewer have examined whose behaviour changes and how. In a natural experimental study of new walking and cycling infrastructure, we explored […]
