- •This research determined core domains (important types of outcomes).
- •Findings are for studies of physical activity in hospitalized older adults.
- •Findings may also improve outcome reporting in studies of sedentary behavior.
- •Use of a consensus approach with researchers, clinicians, policymakers, and patients.
- •Core domains provide the starting point for developing a core outcome set.

An abstract of the study results was accepted for the International Society of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity, June 15-25 2020, International online conference 'XChange initiative' (in lieu of COVID-19 cancellation of originally scheduled face to face conference in Auckland, NZ).
Supported by the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, Flinders University (Establishment Grant - 2018), and from the Caring Futures Institute, Flinders University (Accelerator Grant - 2019). The grant reviewers provided feedback on the original study design (proposal), but there was no conflict of interest and there was no role in the study methods, subject recruitment, data collection, analysis, or preparation of the article.
