Principles and Applications of Resistance Training
One day practical course
4 REPS CPD points
£185 (£165 BACPR/ACPICR members)
This course aims to increase awareness, understanding and confidence in prescribing resistance training (RT) to patients with cardiovascular disease.
This 1 day course is aimed at all healthcare professionals (e.g. physiotherapists, nurses) involved in the delivery of exercise to the cardiovascular population who wish to expand their knowledge to include resistance training. It is an opportunity to explore the theory and principles of resistance training and includes both a theoretical and practical component. Knowledge gained will enable safe and effective practice which can be implemented in future service delivery.
Whilst this course aims to review the evidence base and to provide both theoretical knowledge and practical advice on exercise prescription for resistance training in cardiovascular patients, it is not formally assessed and therefore does not serve as a specialist qualification to lead, prescribe or deliver the exercise component of cardiac rehabilitation.
