In our most recent research project, we are exploring the potential of using the perioperative encounter to promote regular exercise and physical activity. This is a mixed-methods study including a comprehensive systematic review as well as visits to sites in the UK to observe and to discuss how physical activity is promoted*. We aim to establish what methods are successful at promoting physical activity in the medium- to long-term, and the contexts that may enable this success

Because of the effects of the coronovirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have been unable to carry out site visits to observe practice. In order to still capture valuable information, we are planning to engage with service providers and patient representatives in a series of remote focus group discussions.
