Course Aims

A one-day course combining theory and practical application for physiotherapists, essentially to develop clinical reasoning and decision-making skills when reviewing the needs of older people who are being seen in a community setting:

  • To update them on neuro-musculo-skeletal aspects of the ageing body (with a focus on changes in gait and balance) of relevance to clinical practice with this population
  • To review contemporary research evidence about the benefits of physical activity, exercise for falls prevention, and recognition and management of frailty, with reference to secondary complications of the COVID-19 pandemic
  • To consider commonly used assessment tools and outcome measurement, and how these can be modified when assessing people online
  • (NB. This course mainly covers physical changes with this population, and does not cover dementia. Also, hospital-based therapists may find our acute setting course or multidisciplinary course more suitable)

 

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • List common changes that occur in the ageing nervous, muscular and skeletal systems
  • Discuss and consider the appropriateness of assessment tools, treatments and outcome measurement commonly used for physical intervention with their ageing patients and clients
  • Access research evidence about the benefits of physical activity, falls prevention and frailty to inform their clinical practice
