The fourth edition of ACSM's Exercise Management for Persons with Chronic Diseases and Disabilities reveals common ground between medical and exercise professionals, creating a more collaborative approach to patient care. Developed by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) with contributions from a specialised team of experts, it presents a framework for optimising patients' and clients' functionality by keeping them physically active. This updated fourth edition outlines why exercise is significant in the treatment and prevention of disease, advises medical and exercise professionals in considering proper exercise prescription protocols and provides evidence- informed guidance on devising individualised exercise programmes. Its emphasis on assisting people with multiple conditions, which is ever present in health care today, moves beyond primary and secondary prevention to focus on how patients and clients can be kept physically active and functionally fit.
