Course Description:
Most practices grapple with the challenge of enabling patients to be drivers of their own wellness regimen. Exercise is a vital part of Lifestyle Medicine, which not only prevents disease but is integral to the treatment, management (and reversal) of many noncommunicable chronic diseases: type 2 diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, stroke, high cholesterol, many cancers including breast and colon, depression, anxiety, osteoarthritis, and sexual health issues. This course offers proven strategies to counsel and motivate patients and offers evidence-based tools and techniques to prescribe individualized exercise programs.

Attendees receive the latest updates in exercise risks and outcomes, best practices for behavioural counselling, exercise demonstration techniques, and guidelines for patient-centered exercise prescription. Attendees will also have the opportunity to hone new skills through participation in exercise demonstration sessions and workshops for an office-based fitness assessment. The economics of healthcare reform increasingly pressure clinicians to promote physical activity. This course provides education to stay at the forefront of this critical global trend and to lead by example in transforming our patients and ourselves to Active Lives.

The one-day course Culinary Health Education Fundamentals (CHEF) Coaching will provide attendees with expanded skills, resources and education to help patients improve their attitude and habits to increase home cooking of healthier food.

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Apply important principles of exercise science to adult and pediatric patients.
• Negotiate and write an effective exercise prescription.
• Demonstrate various exercise activities for personal use and the purposes of educating patients.
• Track the results of a patient’s physical activity plan.
• Improve and maintain a personal program of regular physical activity.
• Translate culinary medicine knowledge and skills into coaching practice to improve the health and nutrition of patients.
• Provide guidance to patients for shopping, food storage and meal preparation.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
