Fysisk aktivitet på recept? : Artiklar i Läkartidningen under 20 år.(1996-2016)

By Ylva Jernudd Wilhelmsson


This paper investigates how articles in Läkartidningen concerning the importance of physical activity have been formulated over the last twenty years. The paper analyses not only how a possible discursive change in the contents of the articles has occurred, but also how an attitude change among doctors can be detected. This is reflected in the increased amount of prescribed physical activity (“FaR”) that is notable during the investigated time period and thus could be considered a variable of effect
