Position Description

We have developed a sophisticated

accredited exercise coaches while exercising in their home, local or other
preferred environment, and receive evidence- and theory-based behavioural

every individuals’ pocket. The proposed
PhD project will examine
the potential scalability and translation of the
SCRAM intervention.
