Call for research participants - Ethnic differences in influences on physical activity participation in older adults: A qualitative study
Ethnic differences in influences on physical activity participation in older adults: A qualitative study
The Melbourne University Academic Unit for Psychiatry of Old Age (AUPOA) is looking for individuals to help us understand older adults’ views about physical activity and any barriers and enablers they are facing to participate in physical activity. This will provide us some insights on how the public health system could be better improved to encourage physical activity among older adults. Participants will only need to attend an interview (either face to face or via phone) to discuss their experiences and complete a short questionnaire to provide some background information. Participants can choose English, Mandarin or Cantonese to attend the interview.
People who answer ‘yes’ to the following may be eligible to join this study:
- Aged 60 years or older
- Australian-born or Chinese-born
- Living in the community
- Free of severe medical conditions that affect your ability or motivation to participate in physical activity
