Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine the obstacles and problems prescribers of exercise on prescription (EoP) in primary care in Bollnäs and Söderhamn experience when using the method. It also aimed at examining if the barriers identified in previous studies also will be found in Bollnäs and Söderhamns municipalities. A qualitative study was made and four interviews with the managers of health centers in Bollnäs and Söderhamns municipalities were completed. The only inclusion criteria was that it would be a licensed health care professional at the clinic who work with, and prescribe the EoP. A content analysis was performed, which categorized the statements made according to their content. The results of the study showed that prescribers experienced obstacles and problems with the method. The main reason was lack of time, particularly insufficient time to provide information on adequate physical activity. Another obstacle was difficulties to motivate patients to become more physically active, as well as interoperability issues with politicians and complicated prescription forms. The study confirmed previous research regarding the barriers identified. The basis for the study was small and it is therefore not possible to generalize from the results obtained.
