Motivate2Move Factsheets

GPs often cite a lack of time and lack of training and knowledge as primary barriers to counselling efforts and as prohibiting factors when asked about the barriers they face in promoting physical activity in practice.

The resource Motivate2Move was created by GPs with this in mind. It aims to increase your ability to promote physical activity advice within your consultation. Designed with brief bites of key information, scientific evidence of benefits in 33 conditions are presented alongside a starting example of behaviour change using Motivational Interviewing.
