Biography

INTRODUCTION

Matthew Mclaughlin (Tepi) is a PhD Student at the University of Newcastle. His PhD is embedded in a health service delivery organisation delivering a large physical activity program in schools, Hunter New England Population Health. Tepi is also the Chair of the International Society for Physical Activity and Health Early Career Network

His avid interest is in getting people moving more.

MEDIA, ENGAGEMENT AND IMPACT

"Are you a journalist? I'm keen to engage with you and your story about exercise, physical activity, active commuting, cycle-ways, sport, obesity and basically anything that involves movement of the body!" says Tepi.

In July 2019, Tepi spoke with Kia Handley on the ABC about being active in Australia.

Also in July 2019, Tepi wrote in the Newcastle Herald about being more active in novel ways.

Tepi strives to translate his research to practice through effective knowledge translation using tools such as: 

BACKGROUND

In 2017, Tepi completed his Sport and Exercise Science BSc (Hons) at Loughborough University and the University of Western Australia. In 2015, Tepi took a year out of study to complete a one year work placement in research, a Diploma of Professional Studies.

 Tepi is very active on Twitter (@HealthTepi), get in contact!


Tepi presented at the International Conference 'ISPAH' in London, October 2018.

©Judith Byaruhanga, Prince Atorkey, Matthew McLaughlin, Alison Brown, Emma Byrnes, Christine Paul, John Wiggers, Flora Tzelepis. Originally published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research (http://www.jmir.org), 11.09.2020. BACKGROUND: Real-time video communication technology allows virtual face-to-face interactions between the provider and the user, and can be used to modify risk factors for smoking, nutrition, alcohol consumption, physical activity, and obesity. No systematic reviews have examined the effectiveness of individual real-time video counseling for addressing each of the risk factors for smoking, nutrition, alcohol consumption, physical activity, and obesity. OBJECTIVE: This systematic review aims to examine the effectiveness of individually delivered real-time video counseling on risk factors for smoking, nutrition, alcohol consumption, physical activity, and obesity. METHODS: The MEDLINE (Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System Online), EMBASE (Excerpta Medica Database), PsycINFO, Cochrane Register of Controlled Trials, and Scopus databases were searched for eligible studies published up to November 21, 2019. Eligible studies were randomized or cluster randomized trials that tested the effectiveness of individual real-time video communication interventions on smoking, nutrition, alcohol, physical activity, and obesity in any population or setting; the comparator was a no-intervention control group or any other mode of support (eg, telephone); and an English-language publication. RESULTS: A total of 13 studies were eligible. Four studies targeted smoking, 3 alcohol, 3 physical activity, and 3 obesity. In 2 of the physical activity studies, real-time video counseling was found to significantly increase physical activity when compared with usual care at week 9 and after 5 years. Two obesity studies found a significant change in BMI between a video counseling and a documents group, with significantly greater weight loss in the video counseling group than the in-person as well as the control groups. One study found that those in the video counseling group were significantly more likely than those in the telephone counseling group to achieve smoking cessation. The remaining studies found no significant differences between video counseling and telephone counseling or face-to-face counseling for smoking cessation, video counseling and face-to-face treatment on alcohol consumption, video counseling and no counseling for physical activity, and video counseling and face-to-face treatment on BMI. The global methodological quality rating was moderate in 1 physical activity study, whereas 12 studies had a weak global rating. CONCLUSIONS: Video counseling is potentially more effective than a control group or other modes of support in addressing physical inactivity and obesity and is not less effective in modifying smoking and alcohol consumption. Further research is required to determine the relative benefits of video counseling in terms of other policy and practice decision-making factors such as costs and feasibility.

© 2019 Human Kinetics, Inc. Increasing population levels of physical activity (PA) can assist in achieving the United Nations sustainable development goals, benefiting multiple sectors and contributing to global prosperity. Practices and policies to increase PA levels exist at the subnational, national, and international levels. In 2018, the World Health Organization launched the first Global Action Plan on Physical Activity (GAPPA). The GAPPA provides guidance through a framework of effective and feasible policy actions for increasing PA, and requires engagement and advocacy from a wide spectrum of stakeholders for successful implementation of the proposed actions. Early career professionals, including researchers, practitioners, and policymakers, can play a major role with helping ¿all people being regularly active¿ by contributing to 4 overarching areas: (1) generation¿of evidence, (2) dissemination¿of key messages and evidence, (3) implementation¿of the evidence-based actions proposed in the GAPPA, and (4) contributing to advocacy for robust national action plans on PA. The contribution of early career professionals can be achieved through 5 pathways: (1) research, (2) workplace/practice, (3) business, (4) policy, and (5) professional and public opinion. Recommendations of how early career professionals can contribute to the generation, dissemination, and implementation of the evidence and actions proposed by the GAPPA are provided.
