Physical activity is a growing problem in Sweden. To improve the situation a working method called FaR was developed. FaR is physical activity on recipe that primary health care providers can prescribe their patients.
The aim of this study was to investigate how a project in which, FaR patients are prescribed by the health center to a wellness facility may succeed. The project is taking place in Örnsköldsvik between the primary healthcare center Ankaret and Friskis&Svettis. Qualitative interviews were conducted with patients, prescribers and instructors.
The result showed that over all they are positive to the project but it reveals a number of obstacles on the road as the price at Friskis&Svettis and time constraints of prescribers. Instructors will also present a lack of knowledge on training with diseases and motivational theories. It is also found that the patients are requesting more support and feedback during the time of prescription. More time, feedback and knowledge is needed to improve the project.
