About 40% of cancer cases in Canada could be prevented following CCS recommendations to “make healthy choices” and the creation of health-supporting environments. However, many people face barriers to initiate sustainable behaviour change. The RiskDialogue project aims to use AI technologies to develop theory driven dialogue mechanisms to deliver personalized healthy choice recommendations guided by the Canadian Cancer Society “It’s My Life!”. At the first step, we will focus on sedentary behaviour interruption and reduction and plan to span across a wide range of behaviours.
