As technology becomes integrated into every facet of modern life, these technological addictions are becoming increasingly prevalent. This session will inform healthcare professionals about the addictive potential of technology and help them view these addictions as legitimate psychiatric conditions worthy of medical assessment, diagnosis, and treatment.
This presentation will provide an overview of the scientific evidence supporting the utility of exercise in maintaining health and decreasing the risk of chronic diseases including diabetes, hypertension, cancer, coronary heart disease, depression. In addition, we will review the evidence showing that exercise can mitigate the risk incurred by diseases like diabetes and hypertension. Then we will discuss a practical approach for discussing exercise with patients/clients and helping patients achieve successful outcomes with lifestyle modification.
Health professionals participating in narrative writing gain a deeper understanding of their own experiences in addition to their patients' experiences, resulting in a rich appreciation of illness and wellbeing. This session will describe the process of narrative writing and allow participants to explore personal experiences during these most challenging times of COVID.
