This course on lifestyle changes for cardiovascular disease shows the role nurses play in exercise assessment and prescription and the common barriers and facilitators to the adoption of healthy behaviors.

The 2018 physical activity guidelines are the focus of this conversational program presented by Dr. Geoffrey Moore and nurse practitioner Kim Newlin.
