Abstract

The benefits of physical activity to health are widely extolled, particularly in relation to the prevention and management of disease. However, few undergraduate healthcare curricula make space to specifically teach physical activity promotion. The professional standards of accrediting bodies ensure that public health and health promotion are embedded in pre-registration degree programmes but there is no standardised approach to covering physical activity. The national Moving Healthcare Professionals Programme (MHPP) is designed to support UK healthcare professionals and educators to gain knowledge and skills that would enable physical activity to be included within routine care to facilitate better patient outcomes.
