Exercise is Medicine® Australia has developed a number of factsheets and resources to help educate you on the role of exercise in the prevention, treatment and management of chronic conditions or disorders. Two factsheets are available for most conditions. The first is a “professional” version aimed at doctors, nurses and allied health professionals. The second is a “public” version aimed for patients and the general public. The factsheets provide information on:

  • The condition.
  • The benefits of exercise.
  • How exercise produces benefits in the prevention, treatment, and management for that condition.
  • The most appropriate exercise for that condition.
