Using the analogy of circles, this professional development will cover some prominent health conditions and considerations commonly experienced by women, related to target hormone cycles, metabolic health, pregnancy and ageing. This will focus on three key stages:
i) Adolescence: specifically looking at underweight (female athletic triad); and overweight (insulin resistance)
ii) Pregnancy: including prenatal, antenatal and postnatal phases, as well as specifically reviewing Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), Gestational Diabetes (GDM), and pelvic floor changes
iii) Post-menopause: looking at hormone replacement therapy, changing risks for chronic disease risk, and profile of bone health
We will highlight important differences from the general physical activity recommendations for key conditions, and will provide a brief but integrated overview of current exercise literature and the relevant implications for practice, as well as providing links or resources that are available to access more detailed information for specific conditions.
This is a recording of a webinar presented by ESSA on 29 September 2015.
Presented by Miss Angela Douglas ESSAM AEP, B.ExSc&Rehab (Hon 1); current candidate M.Sc. (Research)
Angela is a lecturer in clinical exercise physiology at the University of Wollongong. Her background as an Accredited Exercise Physiologist has given her 10 years of clinical experience in private practice, as well as roles in public and private hospital rehabilitation, and consultation through a GP medical centre. Angela is completing her M.Sc (Research), looking into therapeutic effects of exercise for Gestational Diabetes. She plans to continue this area of research into a PhD. Her interest in metabolic health extends to mental health, particularly around reducing physical health disparity and enhancing mental health consumer access to allied health services as part of standard care (AEP, APD).
Angela has been on the NSW ESSA State Chapter since 2009, and has recently joined the National ESSA Professional Standards Advisory Council.
