The effectiveness of peer-based interventions on health promoting behaviors in older people: A systematic review protocol of quantitative evidence
Ramis, Mary-Anne, Chau, Janita Pak-Chun, Lo, Suzanne Hoi-Shan, Sanders, Leonie, & Chang, Anne M. (2015) The effectiveness of peer-based interventions on health promoting behaviors in older people: A systematic review protocol of quantitative evidence. JBI Database of Systematic Reviews & Implementation Reports, 13(9), pp. 177-186.
Peer-based interventions have the potential to enhance quality of life and functioning; however their role specifically within the older population has not been fully investigated. The objective of this review therefore is to locate, appraise and synthesise evidence on the effectiveness of peer-based interventions on changes in health behaviors, specifically for the older population. The specific question to be answered is: “what is the effectiveness of peer-based interventions on health promoting behaviors in older adults, when compared to non peer-based interventions?”
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
