This pilot study assessed the feasibility and appeal of existing hand-held mobile technology (iPod or iPad) ‘apps’ as tools for promoting healthy food planning, shopping and eating behaviours among 19 socioeconomically disadvantaged women.

pp. 90-96

blank image
Megan Varlow , Ingrid Stacey , Sally Dunlop , Jane Young , James Kite , Anita Dessaix and Claire McAulay
pp. 97-103

Results from a population-based telephone survey of New South Wales adults were used to identify beliefs predicting participation in bowel cancer screening, as well as groups most likely to hold those beliefs. Education strategies promoting the need for screening in the absence of symptoms and correcting misconceptions about bowel cancer screening among subgroups of the New South Wales population may improve screening rates.

Melanie Pescud and Simone Pettigrew
pp. 104-109

Overconsumption of treats is a contributor to children’s weight problems. This paper explores low socioeconomic parents’ beliefs and behaviours relating to their provision of treat foods for their overweight or obese children. There is considerable scope for improving these parents’ treating behaviours by understanding the relevant factors underpinning their situations and choices.

Australian school canteens: menu guideline adherence or avoidance? 
blank image
Julie Woods , Alex Bressan , Corrina Langelaan , Angela Mallon and Claire Palermo
pp. 110-115

This study of Australian online school canteen menus found that the majority of school canteens were not complying with relevant state or territory guidelines. Monitoring and enforcement by those responsible for policy together with efforts to build capacity for schools and manufacturers to improve the food supply may increase compliance.

Health policy in South Australia 2003–10: primary health care workforce perceptions of the impact of policy change on health promotion 
blank image
Gwyn Jolley , Toby Freeman , Fran Baum , Catherine Hurley , Angela Lawless , Michael Bentley , Ronald Labonté and David Sanders
pp. 116-124

We explore the impact of Australian policy reforms on health promotion. Thirty-nine interviews revealed workforce perceptions of the impact of policy changes. Health promoters experience contradictory policy and practice environments. This research should assist health promoters to advocate for more accountability in policy implementation to advance comprehensive primary health care.?

Review of policies and guidelines concerning adults’ alcohol consumption and promotion in Australian government schools 
blank image
Bernadette M. Ward , Penelope Buykx , Geoff Munro , Katrin Hausdorf and John Wiggers
pp. 125-128

A desktop review was conducted to examine the policy approach of all Australian jurisdictions to the possession and use of alcohol, by adults, at government school events when students are present. Inconsistencies between jurisdictions highlights the need for consistent evidence-based guidelines to inform school policies as to whether, when and under which circumstances it is appropriate for schools to promote and/or supply alcohol.

An exploratory study of smokers’ and stakeholders’ expectations of the implementation of a smoke-free policy in a university setting 
blank image
Sharyn Burns , Nicole Bowser , Jenny Smith , Jonine Jancey and Gemma Crawford
pp. 129-135

This qualitative study explores perceptions and attitudes of staff and student smokers and key stakeholders prior to the implementation of a complete campus ban on smoking at a large Australian university. Participants generally supported a complete smoke-free policy. Key themes associated with the policy implementation included health implications, stigmatisation and labelling, liberty and enforcement.

L. Wolfenden , J. Carruthers , R. Wyse and S. Yoong
pp. 136-138

A rapid review of the literature was conducted to identify reviews of implementation or dissemination strategies targeting the adoption of school-based tobacco prevention programs. Only one systematic review that included two randomised controlled trials was identified. Such findings suggest the need for more reviews of implementation research in this area.
