‘Love Activity, Hate Exercise?' How physiotherapists are supporting people with long term conditions to become more active

Wednesday 8th May 13:50 - 14:30

The CSP launched the ‘Love activity, Hate exercise’ campaign in 2018 to help tackle inactivity and improve public health. Drawing insights from patients and physiotherapists - the campaign has identified barriers which prevent patients from being more active.

Physiotherapists have the potential to make a real difference to activity levels, and are finding creative ways to motivate patients to overcome barriers – helping them to find activities they love and can stick to.

Our speakers will explore the impact of the campaign to date – from messaging, to barriers and patient worries, to behaviour change and engagement techniques, to achievements and outcomes.
