Abstract

This summary outlines the recent process employed to reduce barriers to physical activity participation for all persons (including those with established chronic disease and/or disability). These screening tools are intended for persons interested in becoming more physically active, allied health professionals, qualified exercise professionals, and physicians alike. Following is a point-by-summary of the process, the key recommendations and new risk stratification strategy, and the changes made to the pre-exercise screening forms. Further information regarding this process can be found at www.eparmedx.com.
