About Heart Wise

Heart Wise Exercise (HWE) was created by the University of Ottawa Heart Institute in response to overwhelming evidence supporting the ‘exercise as medicine’ concept.  HWE works with community physical activity providers to designate facilities and programs where individuals can exercise regularly to manage or limit the effects of a chronic health condition.  HWE offers training for fitness and related health professionals to assist in the delivery of such programs and to communicate recommendations for safe, heart-healthy exercise.

Training Overview

This educational opportunity combines self-directed online learning with live interactive sessions that are designed to present best practice guidelines and create connections between practitioners.  The training is comprised of three components: several short e-modules, on-site group seminar, and online examination.  Participants who successfully challenge the exam will be provided with a certificate to indicate their completion of the training.**  

Topics addressed by the e-modules and workshop include:

      – HWE program overview
