Sport sur ordonnance à Caen : évaluation du dispositif et de l’impact du programme sur l’état de santé des participants

Abstract : Introduction: Physical activity (PA) has many health benefits and physicians are encouraged to prescribe PA for patients with chronic illnesses. Objective: To study the characteristics of the patients referred, and the effect of the PA program on their physical capacities and their quality of life. Method: The study population consisted of all prescribing physicians and referred patients. The patients were suffering from type 2 diabetes, mental disorders, musculoskeletal disorders, childhood obesity (6-16 years), adult obesity and stabilized cardiovascular diseases. 6 physical tests and 2 self-questionnaires were carried out at the entry and exit of the device. Participants were followed by telephone at 3 months, 6 months and 12 months. Results: 138 physicians referrend 330 patients among whom 284 performed the entry assessment and 262 were included. Among those who completed the program (32.4%), there was a significant improvement for all tests and self-questionnaires (p<0.001 to 0.009), with no difference between the groups depending on the orientation. Among those followed at 12 months and having responded (n=41), 73% declared having continued a PA. Youger patients (p<0.001) and coming from priority neighborhoods (p=0.011) were less likely to fulfill the initial prescription and fewer participants referred for multiple referrals completed the program (p=0.020) and reached their goals (p=0.030). Conclusion: The device has a positive impact on the healt of participants and appears to be a lever for certain obstacles for the prescription of PA.
