Exercise is Medicine® created the Rx for Health series to provide essential guidelines on exercise for sedentary individuals and those with various chronic diseases and medical conditions. These handouts are designed to be used by health care providers and exercise professionals to support their physical activity recommendations to patients/clients.
Each handout can printed and given to a patient or scanned into the electronic health record (EHR) to be added to the after-visit summary (AVS).
We hope these materials will support your efforts to guide and inspire your patients and clients to become more physically active and achieve the numerous benefits associated with an active lifestyle.
