Sofie Apers, Heidi Vandebosch, and Tanja Perko published a new scientific article in the journal Communications titled “Clearing the air: A systematic review of mass media campaigns to increase indoor radon testing and remediation”. The objective of their study was to systematically review the current level of evidence regarding the design and effectiveness of mass media campaigns to address the health risks of indoor radon to homeowners. The results show that informative tone of voices prevailed, other components, such as emotional or social components, were often not included. Furthermore, the focus was mostly on intention and less on behaviour itself, and on testing instead of mitigation. Further research is needed to test effective and innovative communication strategies to increase protective behaviour concerning indoor radon. The paper can be found Clearing the air: A systematic review of mass media campaigns to increase indoor radon testing and remediation (degruyter.com).
