Lifestyle Integrated Functional Exercise (LiFE) for preventing falls
Thu 19th April 2018 @ 1:30 pmFree
THIS EVENT IS FULLY BOOKED
Do you or would you like to provide services to older people who are at risk of falling?
Would you like to build new knowledge or enhance your practice in fall prevention in older people?
Sydney North Health Network (SNHN) invites GPs, Primary Health Care Nurses, Physiotherapists, Exercise Physiologists, Occupational Therapists and other exercise health providers to attend an interactive workshop on LiFE program for preventing falls. The Lifestyle-integrated Functional Exercise (LiFE) program is a way of reducing the risk of falls by integrating balance and strength physical activities into regular daily tasks (e.g. unloading the dishwasher becomes an opportunity to improve strength, brushing your teeth becomes an opportunity to improve balance).
