Improving participation of hard-to-reach older people in diet interventions: the INVITE strategy

Abstract : assess the implementation and effectiveness of various interventions in order to identify possible success or failure factors. Methods: Comprehensive Systematic review was performed. After three steps data searching (in PubMed, SCOPUS, Cochrane, PsycINFO, Google Scholar) and critical appraisal, 63 studies out of 739 were fully retrieved. Results: Implementation aspects as intervention types (single or combined targeted risk factors), type of audience (students, parents, school staff, communities), settings (home, school or outdoor), type of organization (face to face, groups, online), professional or peer-led, communication type (written materials as brochures, posters or videoconferencing) or effectiveness measures were extracted and synthesized. Important features of context such as funding, European or government programs were used for clustering the studies. Conclusions: Health literacy interventions in adolescents need the involvement of education staff and parents participation. Health literacy for adolescents has to take into account cultural context, language, psychological features of each age; either digital or non-digital interventions cannot elude face to face communication between adolescents and their parents, academics or peers. Key messages: Health literacy school-based interventions are effective but the content for adolescents audience should rely on guidelines provided by interdisciplinary teams of experts. Health Literacy interventions in adolescents should be age-appropriate and do-not-harm precautions must always be taken in order to avoid prejudices, body-image or self-esteem concerns.
