Nature prescription programs have emerged to address the high burden of chronic disease and increasingly sedentary and screen-based lifestyles. This study examines the base of evidence regarding such programs. The authors conducted a narrative review of published literature using four electronic databases and included case studies, research design articles, and empirical studies that discussed any type of outdoor exposure or activities initiated by a health-care provider from an outpatient clinic. Articles were examined for information on target populations, health outcomes, and structural and procedural elements, and evidence of the effectiveness of nature prescription programs was summarized, discussing needs and challenges for both practice and research.
