“Examination of Instruments Used to Measure the Built Environment and Physical Activity” grant: Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, Disability and Health, Grant # 5U59DD522742

background
Background

Dozens of instruments developed or under development but lack of integration/cohesion from previous studies/research.

Growing need for a synthesized and integrated assessment tool that measures the accessibility of the built environment inclusive of people with disabilities.

CDC Disability and Health professionals need more detail on specific instruments being used to design/redesign communities for general population.

background4
Background
  • Limitations in the biological, psychological, and behavioral explanations of physical inactivity have led to examination of the built environment ...
    • Presence of accessible walking and bicycling paths
    • Community recreation
    • Transportation systems
    • Urban design characteristics
background5
Background
  • Healthy communities provide supportive physical and social environments:
    • Sidewalks and parks
    • Aesthetically pleasing
    • Adequate street lighting and seating
    • Safety incl. protection from motor vehicles
  • Goal for all of us is Universal Design
livable communities 1
Livable Communities (1)
  • Opportunities for people of all abilities to be active & engaged in their communities
  • Accessible communities should be …
    • Walkable
    • Bikeable
    • Have accessible streetscapes (sidewalks, crosswalks)
    • Have accessible recreational opportunities (e.g., parks, pools)
livable communities 2
Livable Communities (2)
  • Inclusive population focus
    • People with physical and sensory disabilities (PWDs)
      • Mobility impairments

udhp project focus 1
UDHP Project Focus (1)
  • US communities using a variety of instruments to assess walkability, bikeability, and other built environment sub-domains.
    • Domain overlap across instruments
    • Limited attention to instruments’ disability focus & UD potentiality
  • Growing # of instruments
    • Need to be catalogued for future synthesis & instrument development
    • Users: consumers, professionals, & advocates in
      • public health, transportation, urban design & planning, & disability studies
udhp project focus 2
UDHP Project Focus (2)
  • Information on subject domain overlap across reviewed instruments
  • Reviews of included instruments, including instrument purpose, sub-domain areas, psychometrics, & contact information.
webinar focus
Webinar Focus
  • Review instrument-specific information.
  • Identify subject domain overlap across instruments.
    • Community use of instruments

  • Identify relevance of instruments to PWD.
  • Discuss UD potentiality of instruments & sub-domains.
  • Show project website with technical assistance available.
project methodology 1
Project Methodology (1)
  • Built environment:
    • Community’s urban design, transportation, and recreational options within a geographical space, which may impact individuals’ physical activity levels.
    • e.g., land use, street and sidewalk/path networks, aesthetics.
    • Additional dimensions: recreational areas and policy and planning
project methodology 2
Project Methodology (2)
  • Search strategy:
    • Literature searches
      • Medline, Ovid Social Sciences databases, Web of Science Citation database, Health and Psychosocial Instruments, Google Scholar
    • Review articles
    • Professional contacts
    • Key words included:
      • measurement, instrument, assessment, tool, environment, environmental determinant, physical environment, built environment, physical activity, exercise, health promotion, walkability, bikeability
project methodology 3
Project Methodology (3)
  • Inclusion/exclusion criteria:
    • Included:
      • Environmental audits & perceived environmental measures of walkability and bikeability, recreational structures, and general built environment features impacting physical activity, such as roads, intersections, crosswalks, etc.
      • GIS environmental assessments of urban design qualities impacting physical activity, including population density, land use mix, etc.
      • Instruments specific to transportation and accessibility for people with disabilities.
      • Instruments with a track record of use in communities.
project methodology 4
Project Methodology (4)
  • Inclusion/exclusion criteria:
    • Excluded:
      • Instruments focusing exclusively on behavioral or physiological measurements related to physical activity in a geographical space (e.g., time spent exercising, or heart rate during exercise).
      • Instruments with insufficient psychometrics, validation information, & instrument development literature, which had no track record of use in communities.
      • Complete instrument not available through search strategy.
