Event description
Physical Activity for the management and prevention of disease - Supporting Healthcare Professionals to improve service user care.

About this Event

A national network of expert Physical Activity Clinical Champions are delivering FREE, tailored, peer to peer training sessions to increase knowledge and awareness about physical activity for the management and prevention of disease.

Around 35% of men and 50% of women are not achieving the recommended levels of physical activity for good health, with people with long-term conditions and severe mental illnesses twice as likely to be among 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 healthcare professional.

However, 70-80% of healthcare professionals do not speak about the benefits of physical activity to service users. This can be associated with knowledge, skills and confidence gaps across HCP's. You can change this!

The training session will allow you to:

  • Understand the role of physical activity in improving service user's mental health and well-being.
  • Improve the management of service users with long-term conditions such as Cardiovascular disease, Type 2 Diabetes, Musculoskeletal issues and some cancers.
  • Access evidence based resources proven to increase knowledge and confidence and support in clinical practise.

This training is open to all staff and students at Leeds and York Partnership Foundation Trust.
