PRE-CONGRESS WORKSHOPS

WTGF: Optimizing Recovery after Solid Organ Transplant – the role of physical activity, exercise and sport

  • More Information

    All across the world, transplant physicians, nurses and healthcare professionals are undertaking interventional strategies and research studies to understand the value of healthy lifestyle education and interventions such as exercise, in the long term treatment of transplant recipients.
    The World Transplant Games Federation, in representing the worldwide transplant community, has also introduced its ‘Fit for Life!’ program to activate and motivate transplant recipients to commit to a lifestyle of movement and activity. In 2017, it introduced its Billion Step Program to motivate transplant recipients to take the first step towards a physically active lifestyle.
    This goal of this symposium is to bring together current thinking about key advances and next steps for developing evidence-based exercise and physical activity interventions to improve long term outcomes in transplantation. The objective will be to showcase current strategies from around the world being undertaken by staff with direct patient contact, and researchers conducting clinical trials in this area. Importantly the session will include patient partners to present on the lived experience of engaging in a healthy lifestyle post-transplant.
