ARMA Webinar on physical activity

30 November 2018

On 30th November, the Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Alliance (ARMA) held a free online webinar looking at supporting people with musculoskeletal conditions to be more active, in partnership with Arthritis Action.

The webinar looked at how clinicians can encourage and support physical activity in people with musculoskeletal conditions. It also explored how to engage with activity providers, to make them better understand the needs of patients with musculoskeletal conditions, like arthritis.

The programme saw Nick Pearson, CEO of parkrun; Michael Brannan, Physical Activity Programme Manager at Public Health England; and Claire Harris, Physiotherapist, discuss aspects of engaging people in physical activity.
The webinar saw over 100 people registered, including arthritis patients, healthcare professionals, and GPs.
