A national quality assurance framework
The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology has created a simple screening questionnaire for determining readiness to engage in physical activity. The PAR-Q (Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire) is recommended by the American College of Sports Medicine as a minimum test of readiness for moderate physical activity programs.
The PARmed-X is a physical activity-specific checklist to be used by a physician with patients who have had positive responses to the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q). In addition, the Conveyance/Referral Form in the PARmed-X can be used to convey clearance for physical activity participation, or to make a referral to a medically-supervised exercise program.
