Get personal to improve heart health

Targeted advice is needed for patients at risk of heart disease. Scare tactics may not be necessary when trying to get patients at risk of heart disease to change their diet or behaviour, a new study by Egenis research fellow Dr Hannah Farrimond has found. Instead, doctors and nurses should be aware of the stage of life their patients are at, and offer them very specific and targeted advice.

Healthy eating

NFER has been commissioned by Purely Nutrition Ltd to evaluate the effectiveness of the PhunkyFoods programme in terms of its implementation in schools, and its impact on pupil outcomes. The PhunkyFoods programme aims to support schools in teaching primary children about healthy eating and physical activity. The study will evaluate the impact of the PhunkyFoods programme and, on the basis of the evidence obtained, will make recommendations for its further development.
