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:
For each key question, think tank participants will work to identify:
- Challenge areas where increased conceptual and methodological development is needed or has taken place.
- The most promising opportunities for resolving challenge areas in self-report measurement, including scientific research, research training, and core or shared resources.
- Best practices for measuring active and sedentary behaviors by self-report with currently available measures and methods.
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.
