Exercise for Doctors

The message is simple. Exercise is the best, cheapest, and most accessible medicine available, and in order to improve chronic disease mortality rates, people need to move more. We are partnering with Exercise is Medicine® Australia to help educate doctors and nurses to make sure their patients are moving enough and understand how to “Exercise Right” for their individual needs. We encourage all doctors to include a physical activity or exercise assessment as part of their interaction with every patient on each visit.

Exercise Right for Doctors Week

Every year, we promote Exercise Right for Doctors week; a campaign aimed at educating doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals about the benefits of prescribing exercise as medicine.

This year, you can get involved by downloading our digital tool kit. There are social media graphics (to be shared during the campaign week), an email signature and a poster for you to put up in your clinic or hospital. Help us spread the word!
