Top Tips from healthcare professionals for getting the most out of Moving Medicine

I particularly love the ‘I CAN’ poster which effectively communicates positivity and empowerment to all who see it, and it really does help overcome the natural tendency for hospital inpatients to remain in bed for far too long.

The “one-minute conversation” pages, for rapid motivational interviewing. I recommend these to everyone in healthcare – doctors and other health professionals. I also recommend them to patients as it is great to have information by condition. It is much easier to convert the theory into practice if the patient thinks it really is aimed at them.
