1. Branscum, Paul Wesley. An Outcome and Process Evaluation of ‘Food Fit:’ A Theory Based Childhood Overweight Prevention Curriculum.

Degree: MS, Human Nutrition and Food Management, 2008, The Ohio State University

In the United States, the prevalence of childhood overweight has more than tripled in the past three decades. Among risk factors commonly associated with this increase, poor diet quality has been noted as a major contributor and promising area for intervention. However, mostly mixed and modest outcomes have been reported for many child-based interventions that aim to improve diet quality. This is reportedly due to limitations that have been noted in their methodology, design, implementation, and evaluation. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of a new theoretically based (Social Cognitive Theory (SCT)) nutrition curriculum Food Fit (FF), designed to overcome limitations noted from previous studies. The FF program was implemented and evaluated with children at five after school sites (n=58). Evaluations included a per lesson pre and posttest to evaluate psychosocial variables of SCT (behavioral capabilities (BC), self-efficacy (SE), and outcome expectancies (OE)) and a standardized instrument was administered to evaluated dietary behaviors. A process evaluation was used to assure program integrity. At the end of each lesson, children were given a free choice between food items categorized as either healthy-choice (HC) or unhealthy-choice (UC), and reported the main reason for their selection after choosing. Differences in psychosocial variables were evaluated between the children in these two groups. Statistically significant increases were found for specific psychosocial variables (i.e. self efficacy for eating fruit as a snack (p<.03), positive outcome expectancies for eating raw vegetables (p<.009)), as well as related dietary behaviors (increased consumption of fruits and vegetables as snacks (p=.0014), citrus fruits and juice (p=.0209), raw vegetables (p=.0006), and increased use of the food label (p=.0017)). Most children who chose an UC reported taste most frequently, while those who chose a HC reported a positive health attribute (such as has less sugar) most frequently. Children who chose a HC also appeared to have higher OE scores than children who chose an UC. These results suggest that participation in the FF program can positively and significantly enhance psychosocial varialbes of SCT related to specific dietary behaviors, which in turn, correspondes with signficicant improvements in these dietary behaviors.

2. Ålenius, Piamari. Det är det lilla som gör det stora : -hälsofrämjande åtgärder vid hypertoni.

Degree: Social and Health Sciences (HOS), 2010, Halmstad University

Hypertoni är vanligt förekommande i dagens samhälle och anses därför ha blivit en folksjukdom. Uppskattningsvis har 1,8 miljoner av Sveriges vuxna befolkning hypertoni. Hypertoni står för cirka 13 procent av den totala dödligheten i världen, och ses som en riskfaktor till ett stort antal hjärt- och kärlsjukdomar. Idag finns det internationella riktlinjer för vård av hypertoni i bland annat England och USA. Dock saknas det specifika svenska riktlinjer för vård av hypertoni. Syftet med litteraturstudien var att belysa hur hälsofrämjande åtgärder kan påverka blodtrycket hos personer med hypertoni. Litteraturstudiens resultat bygger på en genomgång av 16 vetenskapliga artiklar som söktes utifrån litteraturstudiens syfte och problemformulering. De hälsofrämjande åtgärder som kan påverka blodtrycket hos personer med hypertoni belyses i resultatet. Dessa åtgärder handlar om viktminskning, fysisk aktivitet, kost, alkohol, rökning, stress och stöd. Effekten av de hälsofrämjande åtgärderna har visat att en blodtryckssänkning kan ske vid livsstilsförändringar. En bromsning i utvecklandet av hypertoni kan leda till hälsoekonomiska besparingar för samhället. Nationella riktlinjer samt vårdprogram för behandling av hypertoni bör utvecklas för att en bromsning av hypertoni ska kunna ske.

Hypertension is common in today's society and is therefore considered to have become a national disease. An estimated 1.8 million of Sweden's adult population have hypertension. Hypertension accounts for about 13 percent of the total mortality in the world, and is seen as a risk factor for numerous cardiovascular diseases. Today there are international guidelines for the treatment of hypertension in, England and USA. However, there are no specific Swedish guidelines for treatment of hypertension. The purpose of this study was to elucidate how health interventions can influence blood pressure in people with hypertension. The results of this literature study are based on a review of 16 scientific articles which was based on literature review and order problem. The health-promoting interventions that can affect blood pressure in people with hypertension are highlighted in the results. Such interventions are weight loss, physical activity, diet, alcohol, smoking, stress and support. The effect of health promotion interventions has shown that lowering blood pressure can occur if lifestyle changes are implemented and carried out. A braking in the development of hypertension can lead to health-economic benefits to the community. National guidelines and care programs for the treatment of hypertension should be developed to a braking of hypertension to happen.
