BHFNC annual conference 2011
Translating the evidence: What works for physical activity?
This 2011 annual conference Translating the evidence: What works for physical activity? brought together the latest evidence on the most effective approaches to promoting physical activity across the life course and explored how to use this information to develop evidence based physical activity interventions and funding applications.
The BHFNC 11th annual conference programme featured internationally renowned keynote speakers, as well as a range of workshops offering delegates the opportunity to engage in group discussion and provided practical tips on how to translate evidence into practice.
