EX-MED Cancer PD: A professional development course for exercise specialists

EX-MED Cancer PD is a professional development course developed and delivered by Associate Professor Prue Cormie, PhD AEP. The course is based on the latest scientific evidence and extensive clinical experience in delivering best practice care to people with cancer. EX-MED Cancer PD aims to enhance your practice by equipping you with the theoretical and applied knowledge required to maximise outcomes for your patients through exercise.

Example feedback from an experienced EP who has completed EX-MED Cancer PD: “I have completed other cancer exercise courses and I would by far recommend taking the EX-MED Cancer PD course. The modules are extremely in depth and informative the in-person workshop is a great way to connect all that is learnt and how to apply it to each individual case.”
