Stephen van Scoyoc“Practitioners: The Missing Link Between Public Health Policy and Physical Activity.”
Presented by Presented by Stephen van Scoyoc

In October 2014, Public Health England launched Everybody Active Every Day with the chilling finding that it is the UK, not the US, that leads the Western world in inactivity.

Between the GP identifying a patient in need of lifestyle changes and that patient there is a gap yearning for professionals and evidence based practice to fill it.

At the end of the webinar, you’ll be able to appreciate:

  • The perspective and proposed approach of public health officials
  • The difference between goals in athletics and those in public health
  • The importance of effectively implementing change
  • How to recognise their role and responsibility in helping the public make these changes; and the future demand for specialists in this field.
