1

Define physical activity.

Any bodily movement produced by skeletal muscles that results in energy expenditure

2

Energy expenditure can be expressed as a product of 'FITT'. What does 'FITT' stand for

Frequency
Intensity
Time
Type

3

Define exercise.

Physical activity that is planned and structured and often improves an area of physical fitness

4

What is the main risk factor of Type 2 diabetes?

Obesity (partially caused by lack of physical activity)

5

For the following, list the percentage risk reduction associated with physical activity:
All cause mortality
CVD, stroke
Diabetes
Hip fractures
Colon cancer
Breast cancer
Loss of function
Depression/dementia

All cause mortality: 30%
CVD, stroke: 20-35%
Diabetes: 30-40%
Hip fractures: 36-68%
Colon cancer: 30%
Breast cancer: 20%
Loss of function: 30%
Depression/dementia: 20-30%

6

List some conditions that physical activity helps to prevent or manage.

CV: stroke, MI, PVD, CHD, heart failure
RS: asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis
MS: rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, hip fractures, low back pain, fibromyalgia
Endocrine: diabetes
Psychiatric & neurological: anxiety, depression, dementia, stress, schizophrenia, Parkinson's

Beneficial effects on other risk factors obesity, BP, cholesterol

7

What are the minimum physical activity guidelines deemed necessary for significant health benefits (for those aged 19-64)?

30 mins, moderate intensity aerobic, 5 days per week
OR
20 mins, vigorous intensity aerobic, 3 days per week
OR
A combination and accumulation of both

8

How do you (roughly) calculate maximum heart rate?

220 - age

9

What are the guidelines associated with physical activity for older individuals (i.e. over 64 years old)?

Strengthening
Balancing & coordination
---> decreased chance of falls and maintenance of independence

10

What are the guidelines associated with physical activity for children (i.e. 5-18 years old)?

11

What are the guidelines associated with physical activity for younger children (i.e. under 5 years old when walking)?

3 hours of physical activity per day

12

Name a global initiative set up to establish physical activity as a standard in healthcare.

EIM (Exercise is Medicine)

13

What is EIM's ultimate goal?

Transformational change - to institutionalise physical activity assessment & prescription into Global Healthcare Systems

14

What is the EIM solution (3 parameters)?

Healthcare systems
Community resources
Active health technology

15

What are the steps of the clinician module as part of the Healthcare Systems element of the EIM solution?

1. Physical activity assessment
2. Physical activity prescription
3. Referral to physical activity network

16

How are community resources utilised in the EIM solution?

Establishing a physical activity referral network:
Professionals
Programs
Places

17

How is active health technology used in the EIM solution?

Tracking participation
Conducting assessments
Reporting
