Identifying physical activity status

Is your patient active enough for health? 

There are two screening tool options below. The GP Physical Activity Questionnaire (GPPAQ) is a validated physical activity screening tool for patients aged 16-74. We have also included another tool, called the Physical Activity Vital Sign, which is not validated, but is a quick and possibly simpler screening tool, used in a US healthcare system. 1
