May 12, 2021: Swedish Physical Activity on Prescription (PAP) – A Medical Treatment Method in Healthcare
This session will feature Prof Stefan Lundqvist from the Center for Physical Activity Gothenburg and a member of the Swedish Professional Association for Physical Activity (YFA). This session will introduce attendees to the Swedish Physical Activity on Prescription program (PAP) and highlight its role as a medical treatment model in Sweden and several other countries in Europe. Prof Lundqvist will present the evidence for the PAP, highlight patient and employees perspectives, and share lessons learned from their research efforts.

April 27, 2021: A Panel Discussion: EIM Research Projects for Graduate Students
This EIM RLC panel discussion will provide guidance to master and doctoral students looking to do their final research projects on an EIM-related topic. The panel will feature three recent graduates (Mariana Wingood, Sergio Calonge Pascual, and Francia Portacio), who completed either their master's thesis or doctoral dissertation in this area of study. Each panelist will present an overview of their projects followed by an open discussion on lessons learned along the way to help guide other students looking to do similar projects in the future.

In October 2020, the EIM RLC hosted the webinar “PAVS 101: Assessing Patient Physical Activity Levels” to provide an in-depth examination into how the physical activity vital sign (PAVS) was originally integrated into the Intermountain Health System nearly a decade ago. Building on this webinar, this panel discussion featured Drs. Keri Denay (University of Michigan Medical School), Cindy Lin (University of Washington Medical Center), and Cayce Onks (PennState Health) describing the barriers, challenges and successes they faced integrating the PAVS into their own health systems.
- December 2020: Early Career Investigator Small Group Mentoring
This mentoring session provided guidance to early career investigators interested in doing EIM-related research, such as integrating physical activity into health systems, working with clinicians, and connecting patients to community-based physical activity resources. The session was geared towards graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and early career investigatorsand featured five research mentors (Michael Pratt and Sarah Linke – UCSD, NiCole Keith – IUPUI, Patricia Heyn – University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, and Mark Stoutenberg – Temple University) who met with attendees in small breakout sessions. Due to the nature of the small group, breakout sessions, we were unable to record the proceedings from this event to publicly share.
- October 2020: PAVS 101: Assessing Patient Physical Activity Levels
Drs. Liz Joy (Intermountain Health) and Trever Ball (Northwell Health) examine the initial integration of physical activity assessment into the Intermountain Health electronic health record system and the subsequent data extraction and analysis.
- August 2020: Evaluating the implementation of physical activity in health settings
The first webinar for the EIM Research Learning Collaborative was led by Paul Estabrooks, Ph.D., a renowned expert in implementation science and one of the original pioneers of the RE-AIM framework. Dr. Estabrooks reviewed key points from his recent EIM publication, providing an overview on how to evaluate the integration of physical activity in health systems and addressed participant questions.
