Exercise is Medicine for healthy children as well as for children with chronic disease. This course will give a thorough introduction in paediatric sport and exercise medicine. During this week we will summarize the current evidence regarding clinical pediatric exercise physiology and the role of exercise as medicine. Moreover skills will be practiced regarding anthropometrics, exercise testing, and test interpretation. We will also give a workshop about how to measure physical activity.
Paediatric health professionals now acknowledge the utility of exercise and exercise testing in diagnosis, treatment, and the primary and secondary prevention of chronic childhood conditions. Exercise testing has also been acknowledged as a useful tool in the monitoring of disease states and in assessing response to therapy. In this course we will summarize and discuss some of the current evidence and understanding of clinical paediatric exercise physiology focusing on the work our research group in the Wilhelmina Children's Hospital and others have performed in the last decade in a variety of chronic conditions. Moreover, seval external experts will be invited and share their experience with the group.
