Exercise is Medicine®: A Standard in the Clinical Setting

Prescribing physical activity (PA) in the right “dosage” is a highly effective prescription for the prevention, treatment and management of more than 40 of the most common chronic health conditions encountered in clinical practice.  The goals of the EIM initiative are to encourage healthcare providers, regardless of their specialty, to take the EIM Pledge to assess and record PA as a vital sign during patient visits and to conclude each visit with an exercise "prescription" and/or referral to a certified health fitness professional or allied health professional for further counseling and support.

At all levels of healthcare, EIM can be integrated and implemented to achieve the ultimate goal of making PA promotion a standard in healthcare:
