Overview

MidCentral DHB (MDHB) wishes to fund a specialist exercise service that provides specialist exercise programmes for people with complex and chronic (long term) conditions such as respiratory, cardiac and diabetic disease (Complex Chronic Conditions). The programmes will
 - include assessing and monitoring high risk consumers
 - be designed, delivered and monitored by specialised staff with experience in exercise for people with Complex Chronic Conditions e.g. clinical exercise physiologists, physiotherapists, etc.
 - provide each participant with an individualised, supervised exercise programme for up to 12 weeks
 - be delivered in a safe environment suitable for these participants to undertake physical exercise.
The overall goal of the service is to improve participants’ health and well-being. The objectives of the service are to:
 - increase participants’ exercise work capacity
 - teach participants to monitor themselves during exercise
 - relieve participants’ fear and anxiety relating to the health condition and/or ongoing exercise
 - increase the likelihood of participants maintaining an exercise program independently
 - assist with the rehabilitation of participants who have suffered a major event (such as a heart attack) or suffer from deconditioning due to chronic disease
 - transition participants to undertake regular physical exercise as part of their normal activities.

Deadline for Proposals is 12.00noon, 8 March 2018
