National Seminar Series: Enhancing teaching and learning of physical activity in Irish medical curricula
Approximately 2 million adults in Ireland, or 54% of the adult population, do not meet National Physical Activity Guidelines, placing them at greater risk of non-communicable disease, disability and premature death. Doctors play an important role in supporting people to be more active by evaluating a patient’s level of activity and providing advice. However, many doctors report insufficient knowledge, skills and confidence to promote physical activity to patients.

Please join us for a webinar that explores approaches for enhancing teaching and learning in relation to physical activity in medical programmes in Ireland. Speakers will illustrate examples and share experiences of integrating physical activity teaching into undergraduate healthcare curriculum.
