Doctor

This is what some doctors who work in the mental health sector told us they thought the role of an EP is

 

  • “Essential for a substantial number of patients to ensure an appropriate physical activity regime is prescribed with appropriate measures to assess progress.”

  • “Improve patient wellbeing through exercise and dietary programs”

  • “Encourage physical activity; optimize exercise regimes; improve patient strength, flexibility, etc”

  • “Assessment and treatment – emphasis on improving fitness of patients who have developed or are at risk of developing chronic conditions”

 

 

 

 

Reflection Point

Consider what the doctors say the role of the EP is. Are there any misconceptions?  What have they got correct?  What is missing? Does anything surprise you?
