Invitation to NACCHO members to participate in CO-OPS Community-based obesity prevention initiative nation-wide survey
Many Indigenous health practitioners are involved in community-based obesity prevention initiatives.
CO-OPS is inviting all community-based initiatives promoting healthy eating, physical activity and healthy weight, to participate in a nation-wide survey.
The purpose of this survey is to describe the nature of community-based obesity prevention practice in Australia.
This will help to document the characteristics of initiatives and the key components that contribute to effectiveness. CO-OPS will use the survey to identify opportunities to support improvements. Information provided in this survey will also supplement CO-OPS’ annual needs assessments.
No other survey of this nature exists in Australia, or to our knowledge, internationally. This survey has been approved by the Deakin University Health Ethics committee.
The survey takes about 20-30 minutes to complete.
If you require help or have any questions while completing the survey,
please contact Dr. Tahna Pettman on (03) 9035-9591.
The Collaboration of Community-based Obesity Prevention Sites (CO‐OPS Collaboration) is an initiative funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing.
Our aim is to support community-based obesity prevention initiatives around Australia by providing advice, promoting best practice, disseminating and translating knowledge and by offering networking opportunities.
We create the links between academic, policy and practice professionals to ensure best practice and ongoing cooperation in the promotion of healthy eating, regular physical activity and healthy weight as key factors to help prevent chronic disease.
