Global Sport and Exercise Science Industry Advancement Workshops

The International Confederation of Sport and Exercise Science Practice (ICSESP) was formed in 2020 through a collaboration between the ACSM, BASES, CSEP, ESSA and SESNZ to provide a global platform to advance the recognition and opportunities for practitioners of Sport and Exercise Science (SES). The ICSESP has been working to internationalise the professions of SES and establish common core standards of accreditation and practice. This session will introduce the ICSESP and report on some of this initial work. The session will be of interest to all practitioners (ie those that work in the application of their skills and knowledge directly with athletes, patients, or general population) and to academics that educate future practitioners.
Please join us for three presentations of current projects and an open discussion about how to engage with us and what it means for the future of your SES profession.

Introducing the International Confederation of Sport and Exercise Science Practice (ICSESP)

The science of sport and exercise for health and performance has advanced exponentially over recent decades due to its widespread recognition as a distinct scientific discipline and the breadth and depth of research within the field. As the discipline has developed, a number of subdisciplines have emerged, examining key aspects of physical performance measurement and improvement, as well as exploring the role of exercise in various contexts of health and disease. Importantly, this has translated to significant growth in the recognition of university-level qualifications in sport and exercise science and increasing vocational opportunities for graduates. Despite slight variations in roles and titles between jurisdictions, there are now well-established professional roles in the sports and exercise sciences in several countries around the world. These include Clinical Exercise Physiologists specialising in the use of exercise as medicine for preventing and treating injury and illness, and Sport Scientists who use the science of exercise and human movement to enhance athletic development and performance.

ACSM Publishes New Recommendations on Type 2 Diabetes and Exercise

(Indianapolis)- Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects more than 463 million people worldwide, and type 2 diabetes accounts for 90-95% of all cases. Research in exercise science confirms that physical activity can help prevent type 2 diabetes, as well as help patients manage its effects. To assist consumers and exercise professionals in fighting type 2 diabetes, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) has released recommendations in the February issue of its flagship journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise.

Active Voice: Exercise is Medicine for COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has dominated nearly every aspect of our lives during the past 18 months. Early on, studies showed the elderly and patients who suffer from non-communicable diseases (NCDs) were at greatest risk for severe COVID-19 outcomes, defined as being hospitalized, admitted to the intensive care unit and dying. Yet we know that regular exercise has been shown to significantly reduce the incidence and improve the management of NCDs and enhance immune function.
