Parkrun Australia organise free, weekly 5km runs across Australia and are currently asking Australia-based primary healthcare professionals to fill out a survey. The purpose is to learn if healthcare professionals are referring patients to parkrun as part of the concept of "social prescribing" and how they are signposting people. If they aren't, what barriers exist to those referrals and how they may be overcome.
If you're a healthcare professional, just a few moments of your time would be greatly appreciated.
