National Early Childhood Education & Care Survey: Understanding How Barriers to Implementing Nutrition and Physical Activity Programs Change Over Time

NCOIS is conducting a national survey to better understand population-level changes in barriers to the implementation of priority nutrition and physical activity interventions in Australian Early Childhood Education & Care (ECEC) services. The research team will undertake a living assessment of barriers to implementation experienced by staff in ECEC services. A ‘living’ approach to assessment will create a system that will monitor changes in barriers over time.

The results of this study will provide proof-of-concept data for the benefits of using a living system to track and address dynamic barriers as they arise, and change, throughout the implementation process. This system has the potential to facilitate real-time tailoring of implementation.
