Event description

Description

Supporting health care professionals to improve patient care and outcomes.

A national network of expert Physical Activity Clinical Champions are delivering FREE tailored, peer to peer training sessions to groups of health care professionals (HCPs)

Around 1 in 3 men and half of women are not achieving recommended levels of activity for good health, with people with long term conditions twice as likely to be amongst the least active. Physical activity is incorporated across NICE clinical guidance, with evidence suggesting 1 in 4 people would be more active if advised by a health care professional.

However, 70-80% of health care professionals do not speak about the benefits of physical activity to patients. This can be associated with knowledge, skills and confidence gaps across health care professionals.

Benefits of training

Attending this free training provides the opportunity to:

· Access evidence-based resources proven to increase knowledge and confidence, and support clinical practice in line with guidance (e.g. NICE)

· Improve management of patients with 30+ long-term conditions (e.g. CVD, type 2 diabetes, depression, MSK issues, and some cancers).

· Help reduce service demand and costs i.e. the ~£0.9bn annual cost to the NHS associated with insufficient physical activity

· Find out about local signposting opportunities in Leeds.
