Do you or would you like to provide services to older people who are at risk of falling?
Allied Health Professionals 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. There will be no charge for workshop attendance if you agree to study participation (attendance normally costs $150). If you agree to take part in the study we will assign some people to the earlier workshop date and some to the later date, so we would need you to be available for both of the dates. We will ask you to complete a questionnaire now and also another questionnaire in 3 months’ time to gauge your knowledge, confidence and behavior regarding the delivery of fall prevention exercise to older people.
