Physical activity patterns in mid-life and associations with health outcomes in women

Synopsis

Most studies have estimated physical activity (PA) using a single time point. Few studies have examined the associations between longitudinal PA patterns, which may better reflect true PA patterns, and long-term health outcomes. The aim of this project is to examine the associations between longitudinal PA patterns and various health outcomes including health-related quality of life and mortality outcomes in Australian women. This project’s findings will improve knowledge and understanding of PA longitudinal patterns for improved health in women, and can help inform the development of strategies for increasing PA among women and improving long-term health outcomes.
