BASEM Reports: Moving Medicine Handbook

By Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine UK, 2 Aug, 2022 | 1 min read

Our Moving Medicine team have taken over the latest issue of BASEM Reports with a series of articles outlining the evidence behind prescribing movement.

BASEM Reports is a periodic publication produced by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Medicine (BASEM) and available to its membership. It is described as ‘sitting educationally between the BASEM instructional courses and the more research-centred British Journal of Sports Medicine (BJSM)’. The 4th edition serves as a ‘Moving Medicine Handbook’.

The special issue was presented by Moving Medicine Clinical Director Dr Hamish Reid, and features contributions from MM collaborators Dr Raj Amarnani, Dr Richard Antbring, Dr Amy Boalch, Dr Jennifer Brodie, Dr Elton Chawatama, Dr Emma Lunan, Bonar McGuire, Dr Alexandra Mundell, Dr Frank O’Leary, Dr Lewis Raiman, Dr Ashley Ridout, Dr Nipuna Senaratne, Dr Farhan Shahid, Dr Nicholas Wright and Dr William Wynter Bee.

The Moving Medicine edition includes articles on physical activity with relation to obesity, menopause, cancer and mental health, as well as personal perspectives on Moving Medicine in general practice and primary healthcare, details of the team’s recent Consensus Statement on the risk of physical activity for those with long term conditions, and more.
