Course outline

In this blended intensive program, we will talk about the difficulties of changing behaviour and your role as a Physical activity and lifestyle or health professional. We will have guest speakers from five European countries from our Physical activity and lifestyle network to lecture about topics related to changing behaviour and lifestyle factors as physical activity, stress reduction and nutrition. In the group work, you will be working on a case study together and are asked to come up with an intervention plan for someone with a chronic disease.
In Europe and beyond, the impact of lifestyle-related health problems requires new approaches. Combined interventions, with an emphasis on sports and physical activity, can play a major role in enhancing a healthy lifestyle for European citizens. For the development, implementation and evaluation of such interventions you are needed as the ‘Physical Activity and Lifestyle professional’. Lifestyle-related health problems such as obesity, diabetes mellitus type 2, several forms of cancer, heart disease and other adverse conditions are increasing public health problems which cause an enormous burden for the EU society. In light of the recent pandemic, it shows that people with lifestyle-related health problems are more vulnerable to the Covid-19 virus. So all the more reason to come up with solutions for a healthy lifestyle.
