Systems-level change is necessary for physical activity (PA) assessment and counselling to truly become a standard in healthcare. Realizing such change requires the support of the leading U.S. healthcare provider associations.
EIM asks that every professional healthcare provider association joins the EIM Alliance and calls on its members to take action by helping their patients become healthier and more active. One way healthcare organizations can work together is by asking their members to take “the Pledge.” Healthcare providers can make the commitment to incorporate PA assessment, counseling and referral into their practices at whatever level of commitment they feel comfortable with, from simply asking patients about their current PA level and providing brief advice, to becoming a champion for system-level change in their healthcare system.
Contact the U.S. EIM Representative (located in the footer of the page) to learn more about how your professional healthcare provider organization can join the EIM Alliance.
