What have you learned this week?

This week we have given a broad introduction to exercise prescription for the treatment of disease and you have:

  • Examined different ways of measuring physical activity
  • Explored exercise prescription in various clinical populations
  • Reflected on how exercise prescription is prioritised for different clinical cohorts

Thinking about these elements:

  • How will you apply what you have learned this week with your own patients, or in your own daily life?

At the end of Week 2, Cuisle and Aine will be reflecting on your comments in this step. Check back on Friday 29 April for an update.

Update: 16:06 29/04/2016 Cuisle Forde

Thank you all for your contributions over the last two weeks. It is hard to believe that this course is coming to an end already! This week we have examined and discussed the role of exercise for brain health, methods of measuring aspects of fitness and exercise as a treatment tool for patients with various chronic diseases. We have thoroughly enjoyed reading your comments and questions. As you can imagine the area of exercise in the prevention and treatment of disease is extensive and we have not had time to cover all aspects of this growing area in this course. We hope you have enjoyed learning about exercise over the course of this course, and with the summer coming that you enjoy staying active!
