Abstract [en]

Physical inactivity is a public health problem and lead to bad health in the population. Healthcare in Västmanland has started the process of prescribing physical activity (OFA) to improvehealth. Sport is an important participant in prescribed physical activity and the sportseducational association, SISU Idrottsutbildarna, is organizing activity leadership training.They educate activity leaders in accepting patient’s prescribed physical activity. The aim ofthe thesis was to study the experiences of Activity Leaders in Västmanland have about theactivity leaders training and the perceptions they have about prescribed physical activity. Toanswer the thesis, six qualitative interviews carried out and analyzed with the help ofconcentration of the contents. The Activity Leaders’ experiences of the education aregenerally positive and their perceptions of prescribed physical activity vary. They believe thatthe activity leadership training can be improved and they are critical of that works are notstarted in a desirable manner and that health care does not prescribe group activities in agreater extent. Activity Leaders feel that the exchange of experiences, greater disseminationof information and health care employees' attitudes to OFA are important elements to improvethe process of prescribed physical activity. Activity Leaders welcomed the future with regardto prescribed physical activity, but that the current economic situation and the lack ofsubsidies will delay the work. Because the work of prescribed physical activity are not yethappened makes it difficult for the Activity Leaders to actively work with prescribed physicalactivity.Physical inactivity is a public health problem and lead to bad health in the population.
