Brenton Watson (AEP)

My approach to patient education and exercise prescription can be summarised as follows:

  • The best exercise is the one that gets done – making sure the exercise is realistic and achievable
  • Building patient rapport is vital to understand and address their beliefs, expectations and knowledge
  • Exercise is like brushing your teeth -  it’s only effective when done consistently
  • The language I use with patients is carefully chosen to remove unhelpful patient beliefs and to motivate and educate effectively
