The Doctor will see you now…
We are pleased to report that Dr Dane Vishnubala (MBBS PGCME MRCGP FHEA) has already made a positive impact since joining as our Chief Medical Adviser in January. Dane is working in close partnership with us to help develop the health-related content of our qualifications and his input is keeping us up to date with current best practice.
One of his first tasks was to support us with the launch of our new Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training, to enhance the ability of personal trainers to deal with the rising number of clients with medical and healthcare needs.
New and refreshed modules addressing Anatomy & Physiology, Nutrition, Chronic Diseases, Behaviour Change, Exercise and Business Skills have been created to provide a fully refreshed qualification that is up to date and fit for purpose to prepare our future workforce.
“It is nice to see that Active IQ has taken on board research and evaluation regarding qualifications and with this created a personal trainer qualification we can definitely be proud of”
Dr Dane Vishnubala.
With over 14 years’ experience in the health and fitness industry as an exercise professional, Dane’s insight from holding the following positions is highly valuable to the active leisure industry, including his work as:
- A GP, NHS Sport and Exercise Medicine Doctor and Public Health England GP Clinical Champion for Physical Activity
- Sports Medicine Physician and GB Basketball Senior Men’s Team Doctor
- York City Football Club Doctor
- Royal College of GPs (RCGP) Lead Clinical Advisor for Physical Activity and Lifestyle
- British Association of Sport and Exercise Medicine (BASEM) Executive Member
You may already have heard Dane in action when he delivered the webinar last month on consultation and behaviour change skills. If you missed it, catch up atwww.activeiq.co.uk. His next webinar, taking place on the 26th April at 4pm, will focus on Delivering Chronic Disease Education to the next generation of personal trainers and will include the five key chronic disease conditions that need to be covered as part of the new qualification.
