Statewide (Rhode Island and Neighboring States) Partnerships for Worksite Weight Management
|Overweight Obesity||Behavioral: WOW, Working On Wellness weight management||Phase 2|
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Prevention
|Official Title:||Statewide Partnerships for Worksite Weight Management|
- Weight (BMI) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
|Study Start Date:||June 2006|
|Study Completion Date:||August 2012|
|Primary Completion Date:||August 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Active Comparator: T
Treatment arm comprises one worksite in a matched site pair; one site assigned to treatment, the other site assigned to comparison. Treatment site worksite-based health promotion activities such as self-directed campaigns, lectures, small group programs, online programs, environment interventions (food service and physical)--all with focus on nutrition, physical activity and/or weight management.
Behavioral: WOW, Working On Wellness weight management
Treatment site, worksite-based health promotion activities such as self-directed campaigns, lectures, small group programs, online programs, environment interventions (food service and physical)--all with focus on nutrition, physical activity and/or weight management.
Accomplishment of the specific aim will be determined by a two group randomized effectiveness study (Treatment vs. Comparison) utilizing 24 RI worksites with randomization by site. The specific impact and outcome evaluation measures (BMI, DHQ-FFQ, and 7-day PAR) will be collected at Baseline, 12, and 24 months on a longitudinal cohort selected at random from the employee lists of each participating worksite. Extensive process evaluation and a mediating variable framework are also included to identify the mechanisms in successful change at both the worksite and individual level, which will maximize the potential for dissemination and generalization of the intervention as well as advance theory and improve intervention practice and policy.
Primary outcome measure will be weight (BMI).
