Award category: Best Health and Wellness Innovation
Moving Medicine provides clinicians and allied health professionals with evidence based, condition specific information to help facilitate better conversations about physical activity at all stages of the patient’s treatment pathway.
The resources, available at movingmedicine.ac.uk help to facilitate behavioural change and have been developed with over 300 healthcare professionals and with a number of key partners, including Royal College of Physicians, the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, the Royal College of General Practitioners, the Royal College of Nursing and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists.
The resource offers clinicians the option to tailor their conversations depending on the time available to them, with options for a 1 minute, 5 minute and more minutes consultation. Each have evidence based information and places to signpost the patient for further information, and there is also a handy patient information leaflet which can be printed out.
The initiative has been produced and developed by the Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine (UK) in partnership with Public Health England and Sport England.
