Article of the Week
'Behavioral Economics' Can Help Docs Encourage Patients to Step Up Activity
Researchers at the American Cancer Society (ACS) present a comprehensive approach to physical activity counseling at the primary care level by incorporating behavioral economics insights such as "present-time bias" and "status quo bias". The authors highlight the important role that primary care physicians play in guiding patients to adopt and maintain healthier lifestyles, on the premise that patients hold physician advice in high regard. This new approach warrants empirical testing, they note.
