 Medical History and Informed Consent 

Read Chapter 3 in the course text prior to completing this discussion. In Week 1, you evaluated 3 case studies to determine if the client needed to receive medical clearance prior to engaging in an exercise program. For this discussion, assume you are working with Louis, Case Study 3 from Week 1.  He wants to begin running at a vigorous intensity three days a week at the local fitness center.   After your client receives medical clearance to begin an exercise program, as the qualified health care professional, your next steps are to complete a health history and review the informed consent with your client.

For this discussion, assume you are working with an individual who has a moderate risk of experiencing health-related problems during exercise. Review the sample Informed Consent  downloadform and then complete the following:

  • Identify the components of the Medical History.
  • Explain the purpose of the Informed Consent form.
  • Expound on the contents included in an Informed Consent form.

Your initial contribution should be 250 to 300 words in length. Your research and claims must be supported by your course text and a minimum of one additional scholarly source. Use proper APA formatting for in-text citations and references as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
