Current expressions of interest

The Sax Institute is commissioning an Evidence Check review on lifestyle modification programs.  Expressions of interest close on 13 February 2020.

The review will address the following questions:

  1. What factors influence whether a health practitioner will refer chronic disease patients to a population-based lifestyle intervention program?
  2. What elements of the referral process make a health practitioner refer their patients to a lifestyle modification program in a way that increases patient uptake and engagement with the program?
  3. What factors determine if a chronic disease patient referred to a lifestyle modification program will enrol and complete the program?

A draft (complete) report is required by 9 April 2020 and the final report by 12 May 2020.
