Abstract IntroductionIn 2014 a reform of the Danish public-school system made it mandatory that physical activity (PA) form part of the syllabus for all year-groups corresponding to 45 minutes per day. The aim is to promote health and well-being among children and youth and to support motivation and learning in school subjects. However, there is an implementation gap between stated activity goals of the reform and prevailing practice.PurposeUsing Søren Winters integrated model of policy implementation, the purpose of this study was to identify and examine important factors for sustainable implementation (SI) of school-based PA in Denmark.MethodA modified Delphi study, containing of four rounds, was conducted: 1) Identifying factors for SI in the scientific/grey literature; 2) Requesting a selected group of national experts (NE) to comment and prioritize factors for SI identified in the literature using a web-based questionnaire; 3) Interviews with NE’s, based on questionnaire responses, to examine outliers; 4) Condensing the SI-factors to the ones of greatest importance at a final workshop including the NE group.ResultsNine overall SI-categories were identified and prioritized: Leadership, Co-workers, Resources, Policy, Organisation/culture, Pupils, Physical environment, Intervention context, and External factors.ConclusionAll categories are important for SI. However, Leadership stands out as the single most important factor for SI in relation to school-based PA. External funding details The project had financial support from the non-profit foundation TrygFonden, Denmark. The funding body has no role or authority in the conduct of the research project, except acceptance of adjustments to the research plan.
