Healthcare

Physical Activity for the Prevention and Management of Long Term Conditions

Wednesday 30 November

10am -12pm
Online
Course

OHID’s free online training for healthcare professionals
Supporting healthcare professionals to improve patient care and outcomes.

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.

Benefits of training

Attending this free online 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+ longterm
conditions
• Help reduce service demand and costs i.e. the ~£0.9bn annual
cost to the NHS associated with insufficient physical activity

The evidence
Over 25,000 HCPs have been trained so far. An independent
evaluation demonstrated improvements in participant knowledge,
confidence and frequency of patient physical activity conversations:
• 84% agreed the training was useful in their work
• 91% would recommend the training to their colleagues
• 40% of HCPs were having more conversations with their
patients about physical activity post-training
