Our highly specialised presenters bring their clinical experience and knowledge to explore the practical, evidence-based use of exercise for both preventing and treating chronic disease and optimising sport performance.
This comprehensive online course will equip you with the knowledge and skills to give specific evidence-based exercise recommendations in the prevention and treatment of chronic disease. In addition, it will teach the foundations of sports nutrition and performance, designed to empower busy clinicians to help their patients achieve their training goals.
