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.


The second session in the series is facilitated by Dr Roslyn Carbon.



This workshop is sponsored by Avant and Envision.

Men's Health Update - Cycle of Life Series: Northam

40 QI&CPD (Category 1) Points

It is the GP that most men turn to first for health advice and care, yet they do so at lower rates than women.


It is important GPs are skilled in providing holistic, continuing and comprehensive care to men. GPs need to take into account the impact of masculinity and the health issues relating to men. Men are less likely to respond to preventative health care messages, or present with mental or sexual health concerns.


In this workshop our presenters discuss issues that affect men's health, ways to improve and encourage men's access to GP care, and will improve your consultation and communication style.
