Input sought for study on Digital Healthy Lifestyle Behaviour Interventions for teenage girls – Australasian Leisure Management

Researchers at the Institute for Physical Activity and Nutrition (IPAN) within the School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences at Deakin University are seeking input into an explorative study aimed at understanding what teenage girls are seeking from digital platforms for healthy lifestyle behaviours.

The researchers advise “we would like to learn why (teen girls) use these platforms and what they enjoy about them, as well as what specific advice and guidance they are searching for.”

The researchers are looking for girls aged between 15-17 years old, living in Australia.

Participants are required to complete a brief 10 minute online survey, and if available, a short 30 minute interview via Zoom.

The study has received ethical approval from Deakin University’s Health Human Research Ethics Group (HEAG-H 32_2021).
