How to Give Exercise Advice to Every Patient at Every Opportunity - A Handbook for Every Professional

Movement as medicine!

Medical evidence clearly demonstrates that exercise works for the majority of long-term conditions and certain acute health problems. Every health professional has a key role in helping patients to understand why it is important to exercise, where they can exercise safely, and how to exercise.

When health professionals give this support and advice, patients are able to live healthier, more independent and often happier lives.

This training handbook has been designed to inspire health professionals to think about the clinical practice of exercise services to patients and the public. It covers the basic exercise information that doctors, nurses, pharmacists and allied health professionals should give to patients. The module includes the cost implications of physical inactivity, simple exercise advice for chronic diseases, and how to keep patients motivated in enjoying exercising.

Exercise is a vital part of a patient's life in staying fit, healthy and independent.

This handbook helps you deliver quality exercise advice in delivering evidence-based patient care. The contents include over 20 sections on exercise advice and different health conditions.

Exercise Menu

This is a menu card to inspire hospital or residential patients to exercise! It has been designed to sit at the end of a hospital bed and encourage patients to ASK for exercise advice and support. Patients can browse through a 'starter menu' on how to exercise safely, choose a 'main course' of exercises from endurance/ stamina, strength, flexibility and balance exercises depending on their health needs, and understand the health benefits of regular exercise for their health condition. The aim of this innovative product is to raise the profile of exercise as a medicine in the patient's mind and help health professionals to engage patients in discussions around the concepts of why exercise is important to overall health.
