Think Tank

An invitation-only think tank will be held July 22 and 23, 2010, to discuss approaches to closing the gaps in self-report methods to assess active and sedentary behaviors. The discussions will focus on three key questions:

1. What is the role of self-report in the repertoire of available active and sedentary behavior measurement methods, and how might we best combine self-report and objective data?
2. What can be done to improve the accuracy of estimates of active and sedentary behaviors derived from self-report?
3. What must a self-report instrument capture for comparisons across diverse groups, and how can equivalence be preserved when adapting measures?

For each key question, think tank participants will work to identify:

Following the think tank, panels will prepare consensus statements addressing the key questions. Sign up to be notified when the final statements are available for public release.
