Projects

Student Activity and Sport Study Ireland (SASSI)

Student Sport Ireland (SSI) is the governing body for sport at third level education in Ireland. SSI commissioned this research to establish data on physical activity (PA) and sport participation, opportunities, barriers, and attitudes to PA, and associated behaviours. There are currently no data available as to how the policies and programmes of individual colleges compare with others, or how levels of participation vary across the sector. This study aims to bridge that knowledge gap.

This project involves three phases:

Situational Analysis: Individual college situational analysis to investigate college programmes, policies, culture, facilities and to examine the experiences of 3rd level students around sport and physical activity.

Student Attitudinal and Behavioural Study (SABS): An opt out, online survey of a randomly selected sample of approximately 10,000 students;

Objective Physical Activity and Physical Fitness measures: Objective physical activity and health assessments will be used to validate the survey, based on a subsample of 5 – 10% of the 10,000 students.

The overall aim of this research project is to investigate and assess the participation of 3rd level students in sport and physical activity in Ireland and the factors and issues associated with that participation or non participation, providing recommendations for future development of the student experience of activity and sport.

The project will have three key deliverables:

Accurate, reliable and consistent data on the behaviour and attitudes of Irish third-level students in/to sport and physical activity,

An assessment of the impact of their third-level experience of sport and physical activity on their participation; and

Strategic recommendations to inform future policy and planning within SSI.

This project is the result of a successful public tender by a consortium of partners.  The partners involved are:

Prof. Marie Murphy, University of Ulster Sports Academy.

Dr. Catherine Woods, Centre for Physical Activity and Health, Dublin City University

Dr. Ciaran MacDonncha, Centre for Preventive Medicine, University of Limerick Centre for Physical Activity and Health Research (CPAHR)

Dr. Niamh Murphy, Waterford Institute of Technology – Centre for Health Behaviour Research

Additionally, Prof. Alan Nevill (University of Wolverhampton) will take the lead role for all statistical analysis within the project and Kyle Ferguson (University of Ulster) will be responsible for logistics.  Neal Byrne was appointed as research officer to the project.  Three postgraduate students will assist the research officer to work with an SSI designated contact (institution champion) in each institution, directed by the management team above to coordinate the data collection elements of the project.

The partnership is based on several previous successful collaborations and brings together experts in the field of sport and physical activity research, evaluation and statistical analysis. Collectively they have substantial experience in working across the third–level education sector, while providing a geographical spread to facilitate an all-Ireland approach to the study

Men on the Move

Men on the Move:  The Best Move You’ll Ever Make

The ‘Men on the Move’ [MoM] programme is a community based physical activity programme for adult men that is currently the subject of a national research project.  This project is being co-ordinated by Dr Paula Carroll at Waterford IT and involves a national partnership that consists of: local sports partnerships across eight counties [Donegal, Mayo, Galway, Limerick, Cork, Waterford, Kilkenny and Dublin], the Men’s Development Network, the Health Service Executive and the Irish Heart Foundation.  The research team includes staff and students at Waterford IT and IT Carlow who are supported by Prof. Steve Robertson from the Centre for Men’s Health, Leeds Beckett University [see image below].  The MoM programme and research is funded by the HSE and supported financially both directly and indirectly by the other partners.

 MoM is a 12 week programme that aims to improve men’s physical fitness and overall health and wellbeing.  It consists of co-ordinator led structured group exercise twice a week, two facilitated workshops [diet and wellbeing] an information booklet with a physical activity (PA) log, a pedometer for independent sessions, phone contact from local sports partnership staff and an end of programme 5Km celebration event.  A total of 892 men signed up for this project in September 2015; 476 men in the intervention group and 416 in the comparison group.  Initial data shows that only 9.8% of men were of normal weight; 44.6% of men were in the overweight category and 45.6% of men were in the obese category.  In addition, 27.7% of men had increased risk of metabolic complications with a further 54% in the high risk category.  Follow up data was collected at the end of the programme in December 2015 and preparations are underway to reassess these men in March 2016 [6 months] and August 2016 [12 months].   While it’s too early to conclude the impact of the programme on the men’s health and well-being, early indications are that the men certainly enjoyed it!

“The programme is brilliant, I look forward to the evenings of activity and it is part of my weekly routine.”

“they’re great craic, there are times I am nearly on my knees we’re laughing so much.”

The findings of the study will be reported over the coming months and are also the subject of a PhD and MSc thesis.

Promoting physical activity amongst socially disadvantaged groups

There are notable differences in levels of sport and physical activity participation between different socioeconomic and cultural subgroups of populations in European countries. In Ireland, there is a dearth of information on physical activity participation amongst ethnic minority groups and the CHBR is involved in a research study to map physical activity provision, and the experiences of minority groups in accessing physical activity opportunities.
Key milestones in this work are

• Publication by the World Health Organisation Regional Office for Europe in May 2013 of the outcomes of the physical activity networking project on promoting physical activity in socially disadvantaged groups. NMurphy was part of the expert working group and was contracted to write the evidence review section of the report.

 

• Completion of the EU Preparatory Action for Sport project ‘JoinIn’ , and publication of guidance on social inclusion of migrant youth through sport
http://international.nisb.nl/activities/2

 

• Host of European meeting on physical activity and social disadvantage in February 2012.


• Invited speaker and moderator on physical activity and social disadvantage at the international MOVE congress, hosted by the International Sport and Culture Association in Barcelona, October 2013.

Smarter Travel

The Centre for Health Behaviour Research are measuring the process and impact of the Governments' Smarter Travel policy in the South-East.  Surveys and manual pedestrian and cyclist counts have been utilised to measure the impact of the investment in promoting active transport in 3 Irish towns.  To date over 10,000 surveys have been conducted with school-children and adults.

The implementation process is being measured through regular qualitative interviews with key stakeholders and tracking of local media coverage for the duration of the project.  We are particularly interested in assessing whether an increase in active travel could displace other types of daily physical activity.

Another important element of the research was the development of an intervention to target adolescent girls. This study assessed the potential for ebooks, cycle training, incentivised active travel challenges and a transition year active travel module to increase the numbers of students walking or cycling to school.

Mass events and impacts on population physical activity

Large scale events, such as the Olympic Games, or local “mass sporting events” are thought to impact the physical activity (PA) behavior of the population. There is a perception that such mass events create community euphoria that translates into motivation for PA.  However, the public health potential of mass participation events for PA promotion remains to be realized. 
Our  research involved evaluating the public health impact of the Women's Mini Marathon; a mass community participation event held annually in Ireland.  Findings revealed that the event attracts more than the habitual exerciser to be active for social and altruistic reasons.  A cluster randomised trial was conducted to investigate strategies for engaging inactive women in PA post-event.
