Abstract

This study evaluated the impact and acceptability of a three hour bespoke training workshop for sports coaches and teachers to subsequently deliver a sport-for-health smoking prevention intervention in primary schools. Questionnaires were completed pre- and post-training by both teachers (n=24) and coaches (n=8), and post-intervention by teachers. Interviews were also conducted with coaches (n=7) and teachers (n=12). Both groups displayed a significant increase in intervention knowledge and delivery self-efficacy from pre- to post-training, which was maintained at post-intervention for teachers. Data suggests that a brief training workshop is acceptable to practitioners and fosters confidence to implement a sport-for-health smoking prevention program.
