Activity Overview: According to a study by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), over 40% of physicians talk to their patients about the importance of exercise but don’t offer suggestions on the best ways to be physically active. The Active Lives 2014 CME/CE course sponsored by the Institute of Lifestyle Medicine, Joslin Diabetes Center, offers evidence-based strategies to help practitioners counsel and motivate patients to adopt and sustain more active lives. At the course you'll engage with expert faculty and peers representing various sectors of lifestyle medicine. Faculty will review practical strategies so you can more effectively prescribe individualized exercise programs, you'll discuss the latest updates in exercise risks and outcomes, and assess best practices for behavioral counseling. You'll also have the opportunity to hone your new skills as you participate in exercise demonstration sessions and workshops for office-based fitness assessment. The economics of health care 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 ourselves and our patients to live more Active Lives.
