Environmental and behavioral interventions for the prevention of childhood overweight - Development of a system for documentation and evaluation

Description

The ‚DEVACHECK’-project is funded by the Federal Centre for Health Education (BZgA). The focus of this study lies on interventions for the prevention of childhood overweight targeting the environment and/or individual behavior. The aim of the project is to develop a documentation and evaluation tool which can assist researchers and practitioners alike in conducting an evaluation of present or future projects/interventions. The project includes the following steps:

a.) identification of indicators for successful interventions/projects for the prevention of childhood overweight (using the RE-AIM framework),
b.) analysis of existing documentation and evaluation tools,
c.) development of a pragmatic and interactive web-based system for documenting and evaluating German interventions using adequate indicators and criteria, and
d.) a test-run of the system using projects previously identified in the first step.
