Choice architecture scoping review

HiRes.jpgWe completed a systematic scoping review of studies assessing the effects of choice architecture interventions in micro-environments on diet, physical activity, alcohol and tobacco-related behaviours. Of the 346 studies found, 19% concerned physical activity. We proposed a definition and typology of choice architecture interventions and used these to identify and map the large body of available evidence. Although preliminary, this conceptual groundwork provides a foundation for future research to estimate the effectiveness of choice architecture interventions.
