Physical Activity for the Prevention and Management of Long-Term Conditions

Wed 17 April

1pm - 3.15pm
Online
Course

This FREE online training provides the opportunity to improve management and care for patients with long term health conditions whilst offering access to evidence-based resources proven to increase knowledge and confidence to allow more frequent physical activity conversations with patients.

The training is hosted by Active Lincolnshire in collaboration with Lincolnshire Training Hub and delivered by Paula Manning, a Physical Activity Clinical Champion and CEO of Healthy chats. As well as her long career in physiotherapy and experience working in private, third sectors and the NHS; Paula has lived experience of a long-term health condition which resulted in severe pain and weakness. To help recover from this life changing event, Paula used physical activity; particularly strength training; alongside her medication, to help regain her abilities and to control her pain. Paula now uses her own experiences and life stories to help people understand the physical activity messaging

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. However, the majority of healthcare professionals do not speak about the benefits of physical activity to patients. This can be associated with knowledge, skills and confidence gaps across HCPs.
