This balance workshop has been developed following the work by Professor Cathie Sherrington and colleagues that provides clear exercise guidelines to successfully improve balance and prevent falls. Despite this evidence, implementing these guidelines in clinical practice continues to be a major clinical challenge. Therapists have asked the StrokeEd collaboration about how to implement effective balance strategies that are challenging, of sufficiently high dosage and safe. This workshop aims to assist clinicians to develop evidence-based solutions for people with balance difficulties.
Who can attend?
The workshop will be of interest to physiotherapists, physiotherapy assistants and other health professionals from hospital and community based settings who work with people with balance problems.
