An initiative encouraging people aged 55 and over with long-term conditions to exercise more frequently has been endorsed by the RCN.
Your Personal Best was launched last week by celebrity dance experts Arlene Phillips and Len Goodman at the London Olympics site.
It includes advice for nurses on how to strike-up motivational conversations with patients about staying active.
The RCN is one of ten organisations backing the campaign. Head of nursing Steve Jamieson, who attended the launch, said: 'People with long-term conditions find it difficult to get involved in some activities. We will be encouraging members to signpost people to community or fitness centres.'
The London 2012 opening ceremony will feature nurses, according to artistic director Danny Boyle. He said the NHS has a 'unique' role in the UK. Around 800 NHS staff auditioned to take part.
