FREE peer to peer online training for healthcare professionals in Surrey on how activity can help in the management of long term conditions. Led by an expert Physical Activity Champion. Endorsed by Public Health and Sport England.
Around one in three 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 one in four people would be more active if advised by a GP or nurse1. However 70-80% of GPs do not speak about the benefits of physical activity to patients2. For some healthcare professionals this can be associated with knowledge gaps or a lack of confidence in raising the issue - something which this short course can help alleviate.
If you're still not sure if this is for you, check out this blog featuring two health professionals talking about the training they provide as Champions, or email us for further details and future dates.
