Abstract

"Clinical exercise physiologists are university-trained practitioners who provide exercise services for people living with chronic disease, disability or injury, and are recognised as Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEP) under a national system administered by the Australian Association for Exercise and Sports Science (AAESS). Exercise is now accepted by both the scientific and medical communities to be highly therapeutic for many chronic medical conditions prevalent in Australia today, as well as its value in prevention. A major breakthrough occurred for the AEP on 1 January 2006 when the federal Department of Health and Ageing formally recognised the entry of the AEP into the domain of allied health to deliver Medicare-rebated exercise services for those with chronic diseases. These excellent prospects for the AEP."

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
