Physical Activity – Prevention and Management of Long-Term Conditions

July 17 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Location:  via Microsoft Teams

Supporting healthcare professionals to improve patient care and outcomes!

Free training offer for healthcare professionals, delivered by Varun Anand MSc, MRCP, MRCGP, DipBSLM. Physical Activity Champion for Yorkshire and Humber.

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 GP or nurse.

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 and care of patients with 30+ long-term conditions (e.g., CVD, type 2 diabetes, depression, MSK issues, some cancers).
  • Help reduce service demand and costs i.e. the £0.9bn annual cost to the NHS associated with insufficient physical activity
