The Darling Downs and West Moreton Primary Health Network (DDWM PHN) region has the highest prevalence of physical inactivity in Australia and 70.1% of adults are overweight or obese. The research project aims to develop, implement and evaluate a theory driven and evidence-based behaviour change intervention to increase light-intensity physical activity. The planned intervention will be targeted and tailored for physically inactive, and overweight or obese, adults living in DDWM PHN region. The methodological design includes a systematic review to evaluate the efficacy of light-intensity physical activity on weight management; and quantitative and qualitative approaches to gather context specific data for the development of the intervention. The intervention will be underpinned by the Health Action Process Approach framework and contextualised within an ecological model perspective
