ESSA, the peak registration and membership body for Exercise Physiologists in Australia recently commissioned Deloitte Access Economics to estimate the benefits of employing accredited exercise physiologists to manage three particular groups of chronic conditions:

  • Type 2 diabetes (including pre-diabetes)
  • Mental illness (including physical comorbidities)
  • Cardiovascular and other chronic diseases managed in community settings

Here is a link to the full summary of the report.

 

The take home message is to KEEP MOVING!!!
