Exercise is Medicine South Africa Accreditation has been formed under the global banner of the American College of Sports Medicine initiative.
The primary focus is to educate and empower all Health Care Providers to understand the benefits of regular exercise in the prevention and management of a broad spectrum of diseases, and to give them the means to prescribe and refer to the appropriate Fitness Professionals.
One of the main aims of EIM over the world is to get Health Care Providers and Fitness Professionals to monitor exercise habits, similar to recording vital signs in all patients, in conjunction with the appropriate exercise interventions. Wherever this has been introduced into healthcare systems, it has already had profound effects on health promotion and cost.
This module is FREE and open to all members of the public.
