Exercise interventions for preventing falls – Free Workshop*


PROVIDER: The George Institute for Global Health and The University of Sydney

Do you or would you like to provide services to older people who are at risk of falling?

Allied Health and Exercise Professionals are invited to participate in a research study involving an interactive workshop on exercise for fall prevention. The research will evaluate if workshop participation impacts clinical practice. The workshop will provide information to guide the provision of effective fall prevention exercise programs and pragmatic service delivery for older people.

If you agree to take part in the study, some participants will be assigned to the earlier workshop date and some to the later date, as such you will need to be available for both of the dates. You will be required to complete a questionnaire upon enrolment and also another questionnaire in 3 months’ time to gauge your knowledge, confidence and behaviour regarding the delivery of fall prevention exercise to older people.

COST: There will be no charge for workshop attendance if you agree to study participation (attendance normally costs $150).
