EM221: BRESCIA - Exercise Medicine - II edition

Professor Robert Newton, Phd, AEP, CSCS * D, FESSA, FNSCA is Professor of Exercise Medicine at Edith Cowan University in Perth.

He has published over 800 papers, including 400 scientific journal articles, 450 abstracts and conference articles, three books, 16 book chapters and has a current Scopus h-Index of 75 with his work cited over 19,000 times. As of 2020, it has attracted over $ 38 million in competitive research funding.

Professor Newton has been dealing with research in the Strength and Conditioning field for decades and at the moment he is also involved in research in the field of exercise as an aid to cancer rehabilitation therapy, to reduce side effects and improve the effectiveness of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy; studies the influence of exercise on tumor biology and as a tool to reduce the decline in quality of life, strength, body composition and functional capacity in cancer patients.

The data suggest that increased levels of physical activity are associated with lower rates of some types of cancer, better management of side effects of treatments and greater survival.

In the first day the course will focus on the principles of Strength and Conditioning, the appropriate application of these for common comorbidities such as metabolic syndromes (eg diabetes), cardiovascular diseases, common affections of the musculoskeletal system (eg osteoporosis, sarcopenia, tendinopathies, osteoarthritis, etc. ) as well as the effect of these on the immune system.

On the second day, the course will focus on precise exercise recommendations for cancer patients such as primary, secondary and tertiary prevention.
