Exercise Referral Toolkit Update - Tell us what you think

Last Updated: 7/6/2017

In 2010, the former BHF National Centre for Physical Activity and Health developed and published a toolkit for the design, implementation and evaluation of exercise referral schemes. The Exercise Referral Toolkit consisted of a number of practical guidance documents for professionals involved in the delivery, co-ordination, commissioning and evaluation of exercise referral schemes. As the public health and policy landscape has changed significantly since 2010, SSEHS Active is considering updating the toolkit and exploring the possibility of introducing an Exercise Referral Accreditation Scheme. (SSEHS Active is part of the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences at Loughborough University) In order to help them make an informed decision whether or not to update the Exercise Referral Toolkit they are seeking feedback from professionals who have an interest in exercise referral. The first step is to gather feedback about the existing Exercise Referral Toolkit from those professionals who may have used it. In addition they are keen to understand what information would be useful for those professionals delivering, co-ordinating, referring or commissioning Exercise Referral Schemes who are unaware of, or never used the toolkit . They would really value input from you if you are involved with a scheme to help ensure that, if the toolkit is developed and/or an accreditation scheme is introduced, these are relevant and useful tools for current practice. If you would like to help shape how they proceed with this piece of work please click on the link below to complete the short questionnaire. The questionnaire will take around 10 minutes to complete and will close on Monday 31st July.
