Abstract

In the pursuit of evidence-based practice, the common focus on controlled research within physical activity and health promotion has created a restricted view of the acceptable type of evidence on which practice should be based. To improve our understanding of physical activity (and other behavioral) interventions, a more holistic approach to evaluation is required. In the context of physical activity referral schemes, this article considers the implications of adhering to this narrow definition of “acceptable” evidence and the importance of recognizing alternative evaluative approaches.
