Abstract

Francis Albert studied the effectiveness of physical activity referral scheme (PARS) pathway between general practitioners and exercise physiologists. PARS was found to be under-utilised but invaluable to achieving physical activity intervention goals. Francis developed the 'PRICE' (promote, relate, incentivise, communicate, and educate) model to inform policies and enhance PARS functionality.
