Updated Physical Activity and Health elearning programme

Posted on: October 4th, 2022 by Nicola Kipling No Comments

Health Education England e-learning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with the Office for Health Improvement & Disparities to refresh the content in the Physical Health and Activity elearning programme.

Physical activity is one of the most important tools in the healthcare professional’s toolkit for condition management. It can lead to improved clinical outcomes in over 30 different chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and several cancers

This updated elearning course prepares GPs, nurses and other healthcare professionals to champion the benefits of physical activity with their patients, and in doing so, help prevent and/or manage a number of health conditions.

The eleven elearning modules identify the benefits of physical activity and explore the ways in which it can be applied to prevent and manage health conditions. The course familiarises the learner with how physical activity can benefit a number of different population groups including, children, pregnant women and older people as well as considering musculoskeletal health, the CMO guidelines and how to use motivational techniques to encourage behaviour change in patients.

An Introduction to Physical Activity and Health is also available in the elearning programme. To read more about the resources, please visit the programme page.

elfh is a NHS England programme in partnership with the NHS and professional bodies
