CONFIDENTIALITY OF FORMS

Please note that we do not retain copies of completed PAR-Q+ or the Q-AAP+ forms.  Often clients using the PAR-Q+ or Q-AAP+ forms will be asked to share the completed form with a third party (such as a qualified exercise professional and/or community/fitness center) that may retain a copy of the form for their records. This is a confidential relationship between the client and the third party. Please do not send completed forms to our organization. Any documents sent to our team in error will be deleted immediately without notice to ensure the confidentiality of information.

LANGUAGE VERSIONS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY

Through our systematic approach and knowledge translation activities it became apparent that there are distinct differences in the terminology, understanding (i.e., health literacy), the training of health professionals (including qualified exercise professionals), and referral processes that needed to be considered in each region. As such, we have partnered with various international authorities to ensure that an appropriate, evidence-based document is available to the general population.

We are pleased to highlight the various translations that have been created for the PAR-Q+ and/or ePARmed-X+. Please note that these translations are provided courtesy of third parties. Translations of the PAR-Q+ and/or ePARmed-X+ into languages other than English are intended solely as a convenience to the non-English-reading public and are not legally binding.

Important: Do not begin a translation of the PAR-Q+ and/or ePARmed-X+ into any foreign language(s) until you have:

  • Contacted the PAR-Q+ Collaboration and completed the relevant Application to Translate and Validate Form; and
  • Received written permission from the PAR-Q+ Collaboration to proceed with the translation.
  • Before downloading any of the translations, please read our Terms and Conditions.

Current Translated Documents: Other Languages

Owing to the gracious contributions of volunteers and researchers from around the world we are proud to provide links to documents that contain translations of the current PAR-Q+ in several foreign languages. The PAR-Q+ Collaboration and its partner organizations offer these links as a service to the broader international community with the goal of reducing the barriers to physical activity participation for individuals from across the world. We sincerely hope that you find these interpretations to be of value.

While the partner organization(s)/individual(s) responsible for these translations attempted to remain true to the official English language version, we recognize that the translated versions of the PAR-Q+ materials (and related resources) presented in these documents may not be as accurate, clear, or complete as the official English version. The official version of the PAR-Q+ document (and related resources) is the English version. Please use the translated versions accordingly. We welcome your advice on clear, evidence-based areas for improvement. When in doubt, we ask that clients seek the guidance of qualified exercise professionals and/or physicians within their local community related to pre-participation screening.

ePARmed-X+ Physician Clearance Follow-Up

ePARmedXPhysicianClearanceForm2014Pg1

The new Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire for Everyone (PAR-Q+) and the new online electronic Physical Activity Readiness Medical Examination (ePARmed-X+) pre-participation clearance strategy reduces markedly the barriers to physical activity participation for everyone. This new strategy includes paper and online versions of the PAR-Q+ and the online ePARmed-X+. At the end of the ePARmed-X+ process, it is possible that the participant is advised to consult a physician to discuss the various options regarding becoming more physically active. In this instance, the participant will be required to receive medical clearance for physical activity from a physician. Until this medical clearance is received, the participant is restricted to low intensity physical activity/exercise participation. A specially designed form (i.e., the ePARmed-X+ Physician Clearance Follow-up) has been created to assist physicians in the physical activity/exercise participation clearance process.

The following link contains the current consensus-panel approved version of the ePARmed-X+ Physician Clearance Follow-up: ePARmed-X+ Physician Clearance Form. This form can also be downloaded at the Health & Fitness Journal of Canada via this LINK.
