The importance of physical activity (PA) in preventing and treating many chronic diseases is undeniable. To help general practitioners (GPs) encourage patients to initiate and maintain a physically active lifestyle, 'Exercise is Medicine' has created PA prescription pads. However, they are not widely used in Canada and the reasons for this remain poorly understood.
