Family physicians can play an important role in providing lifestyle advice that aims to prevent or delay chronic disease. Given the vast amount of evidence that regular physical activity improves health and wellbeing, providing brief tailored advice in a clinic setting has the potential to make a positive impact on population health. Working side by side with physicians, the Health Promotion Board has developed the Physical Activity Advice Tool (PAAT) to enable physicians to quickly and accurately provide evidence-based tailored physical activity advice.
