The Role of Exercise As Therapy - Fully Booked

4 QI&CPD (Category 2) Points

Activity based therapy should be considered part of the clinical paradigm for non-communicable chronic disease (NCD), including arthritis, type 2 diabetes, ischaemic heart disease, depression and cancer.

This session will look at the evidence base for exercise as both a preventive strategy as well as part of the treatment regime for NCD. For all conditions, the risk of not doing exercise exceeds the risk of exercise. However, for each individual, exercise needs to be tailored and appropriate.
