It is safer to be physically active

Healthcare professionals and people living with long-term conditions report valid concerns about the risks of increasing activity levels, including fear of exacerbating symptoms or causing an adverse event. A recent Moving Medicine consensus statement on risk addressed these pervasive barriers to increasing physical activity.

The statement provides clear messages for healthcare professionals to help them advise people living with one or more long-term conditions about the potential medical risks of becoming more active. It specifically addresses the lack of confidence, and knowledge, that healthcare professionals report as barriers to discussing and promoting physical activity in this group.
